Sorry if there is another thread for this, but I didn't see one. Usually when writing a character with a thick accent I just picture it in my head and let the reader decide what they think the person sounds like for themselves. But in the story I am writing I started trying to type out the words like I hear them in my head. So I guess the question I have is do any of you ever do that, does it make it harder for the reader to read. I can't remember reading any other story on the boards that do this so I thought I would ask and see what some of your opinions were on it.
