Hoping to get some positive feedback on this. I won't go in to my character's personality and traits but rather describe her background. Register to remove this ad Her name is Margo, she was born in rural France, she moved to America with her family when she was five years old, and has lived in America ever since, occasionally going back to France every now and then. The problem is, I'm not sure how to write her accent. I know most people who were born in other countries and grow up in America usually develop an American accent, but that's not true for everyone. Some people hold to their mother countries accent even if only slightly. When I write dialogue, I usually think about how the person would sound if I heard them speaking to me, and try to create that on paper. But, for this character I'm not sure how she might sound. This character is a bit of a challenge for me, since I've never created a character with an accent. But, I do love challenges and I don't want to change her origin country as it is somewhat essential to the story.
