Character Interview

A little game to help develop a character's personality. I find it helps, especially if you're writing a story from a first person point of view. It can also be quite fun!

The aim of the game is to answer the questions as your chosen character, as if you're interviewing them and noting down their reactions.  If your character is all sweetness and light, answer the questions as such.  If your character is a snarky little git... you get the point.

1 - What is your name?

2 - How old are you?

3 - Where do you come from?

4 - Are you married/in love?

5 - Do you have any children?

6 - What is your profession?

7 - Do you have any secrets?

8 - Who is your best friend/worst enemy?

9 - What would you take out of a burning house?

10 - Name three weaknesses and three strengths.

11 - If you could change 1 thing in your past, what would it be?

12 - What is your first thought in the morning?

13 - What are you terrified of?

14 - What is the 1st thing on your Christmas list?

15 - What is the worst present anyone's ever given you?

16 - Who would you want to talk to one last time?  What would you say?

17 - Would you consider yourself an angel or a devil?

18 - What would your 3 wishes be?

19 - What makes you angry?

20 - Would you like a hug?
