Character interview

by Justin Satov
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)

This is more a task suited to the individual rather than a group, however, someone more creative than I can probably swing it.


It's quite simple; imagine a character -important or not- and think of who you want them to be. Now, interview them. On paper, write down 10-15 questions you would ask. Remember, you want your characters to be interesting. Or maybe they're bland and vanilla, but that could be what's notable about them. Regardless, ask them your list of questions, and try to answer them the way your character would. You'll find that your mind pulls from other characters that you know and love, as well as real people in your life. Everything comes together and you wind up with some well developed characters. Enjoy!
