Daily Prompt: local dialect….


Ahm from th South in theh You-nited staytes of Amurica. Born in Lou-weezieanna, Ah don’t remember much about that place cause I moved before Ah was old enuff to remember, Ah was raised in Arkansaw, then moved to Balomer Meryland. Ah was bullied up North fer my southern axe-cent,  and now ah get teased about my northern axcent. They think I say warter weird, but then up thair, they call it werter and say things like zink instead of sink… youse guys instead of ya’ll… they pronounce Oriole, like Oh-ree-ohs… and say things like… ohwe noeh….

Innyway,  jes cause ah have an axecent doesn’t mean Ah’m stewpit or innything, because when ah need to, Ah clean up intellectually alright. Ah imagine if I went to Grate Britain, I’d eventually pick up an accent there too. It’s all about the way sounds hit yer ear and human nature, yer eventually gonna pick up on what you hear around ya.

Thaz jest my two cents worth… Thank yew fer readin’! Hope you enjoyed it, and Ya’ll come back soon ya hear?!

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!

      1. I’m from St. Louis, not really South, depending on who you talk to, but I just moved to the PNW. Someone was asking me where his friend went, and I said, “She went that-a way.” He laughed at me.
