Answer - Using names and pronouns when there's one person in a scene

Anonymous asked Fandom Grammar When should you repeat a character’s name? If there is only one character in the scene, should you repeat their name once over the course of the paragraph or keep saying "he" or "she"?

Names are useful things and in writing, as in magic, they have power. We get a completely different vibe from Pyanfur Chanur than we do from Slartibartfast.
