Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone can help me. In the novel I mentioned earlier, I need to know, One of my characters has a very thick English accent (because my Dad is from Bristol) I love his accent! This character, Bernard, is a giant tree, it sounds strange but just go with it please, it is a book like nothing I have ever read before. Anyway, I got my Dad to read some of my novel and he kept looking from the page to me a few times, as though I was crazy and the worst speller in the world! Finally he said "you can't spell for s..." I laughed so much at the look on his face, then told him to Read it as it sounds. For example: "Well don' jus' stand thar! Get yer feet off' er me root youngun!" An shut yer mouth ye look like a carnival clown! I need to work on how to write it. Do you write it like this? Properly of course. I created this story and many of it's characters in 1991. I have begun working on it again as I want to finish it and get it published. Would love to hear any comments. Please be honest but I don't have much self - confidence, I don't want to give up on it. My Mum made me promise before she passed away 6yrs ago to finish it. I want to do it for her and me. Thanks, CBK.
