Chaging Character names throughout the story


So heres my issue…
So my main character starts off by saying the full name of another character full name example… “Alexander says” but later on my main character gives him a nickname in the dialogue she says"I’ll call you Alex", should the rest of the story be, “Alex says” or do I keep it the same “Alexander says”?


Either is okay. Alex is way more natural, so I recommend using that.


Hi @notintheoven ,

This would better fit in #improve-your-writing, so I will be moving your thread there. #wattpad-feedback is for site related feedback.

It depends on the situation and who’s saying it.

If it’s a friend, Alex sounds more natural. If it’s a new professor saying it, Alexander sounds more fitting.
