Author's need to use all kinds of voices for their characters, or they'll sound alike. We have to differentiate our characters from one another and this requires giving each one of them personality traits. Their tone of voice is just one portion of developing our character, but a very important part.
Many of us know or have met someone with a deep voice who sounds gruff. They can be abrupt to the point of rudeness, but the ones I've known have had hearts of gold. You probably know people who talk so softly you have to ask them to repeat (sometimes people talk fast, and you have to ask them to repeat) themselves. I have them in my family, and one of them thinks you should listen so you can hear her. lol
People who have a strong even tone are confident; they enunciate clearly and no one has a problem hearing and understanding them. There are people who speak loud, and it can be because they are angry, but it can be they are hard of hearing, or just their natural tone of voice.
All of these things are great to use for your characters and should be worked into their personalities when you develop their profiles.
Thank you for reading. Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
