Guide to Writing Deaf and Hard of Hearing Characters
I’m posting this again so that it can hit the tags. I feel that this is an important guide because there’s some misinformation out there regarding the Deaf community and since I play Deaf characters with some regularity, I want to make sure that this spreads as far as it can. As someone with hearing loss, I’d be disappointed to have my experience invalidated as a result of this misinformation and to be told I was playing the character wrong.
Thanks for reading!
You can do like a pairing thing on ffnet now, and why didn’t it tell me this earlier? It still doesn’t make it any easier to find rarepairs though.
I hate this.
I hate having an idea I want to write, knowing what I want to happen, see it forming in my mind and taking shape..
But w o r d s.
Visuwords is a visual, associative dictionary. It’s also ridiculously fun to play with. Look up words to find both their meaning and any associations with other words and concepts. It produces draggable and adjustable diagrams that look like a neural net. The site’s great 1) to understand how words relate and expand and change meaning and 2) to come up with new associations for your writing and to change up the lexicon you’re using.
