A lot of role players put a good deal of themselves into their characters. Some even describe their characters as being like their children, or like extensions of themselves. There's nothing wrong with being attached to your characters ( provided you're still able to accept criticism and see when things need to be changed/fixed), but making characters who are similar to you can lead to becoming stagnant! In this exercise you will create a character who either passionately HATES something you LOVE, or passionately LOVES something you HATE! If you're a vegetarian or vegan, try writing a hunter or butcher who loves what they do If you're an otaku, write a cynical realist who doesn't see any point in fiction If you're a pacifist, write a warmonger If you love thrills and excitement, write a hermit You get the gist. The main thing is to go into detail about WHY they hate/ love this thing. Tell what they do to enjoy it, how they react when they see/experience it, what causes them to feel this way, etc etc What they love/hate: Why do they feel this way? Did they always feel this way? If not, what made the change? How do they react when they encounter it? Do they rant/rave about how much they love/hate it?
