In Voice Week, you post a small bit from the point of view of a different character doing a scene each day for five days to try to strengthen the voice of each character. The voice is the individual thought pattern of the character and how they see the world.
Post number one will be Bryce from my science-fiction series Subsapien. I will post with snippets of Matt, Ingrid, Emil, and Brian too over the week. :)
Bryce’s handler set a plastic bowl holding three balls of white on the foam floor of the test room. The door shut again.
Bryce swished his furry, spotted tail. What was that? Would it hurt him? He crawled to the bowl and sniffed it. It smelled sweet and like milk. What should he do with it? He reached out his hand and touched the white stuff with his finger. It was cold, wet, and squishy.
Some of it got on his finger!
He wiped it off frantically on the floor and scrambled back. Was it poison? Was it going to blow up?
What do you think of the excerpt? Have you done Voice Week? Links?
