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! This is part 2, another 20 questions to help develop the character.
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.
