EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #12

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, May 13, 2015.

  1. Dropped the ball this month and it's late, sorry all! :(

    I will ask a series of questions. Your character is confined to single word responses. One word only.
    The point of this exercise is to convey as much about the character with as few words as possible.

    Need an example? This video should help explain.


    Remember you can answer questions abstractly. For example:
    What do you wear to work? Honor


    How would you react to moving to a new town?
    How would you go about packing?
    What would you look for in a new place?
    What would you like to take with you?
    If you could choose where to live, where would it be?
    Why are you moving?
    Do you want to?
    If you could go back to your old home, would you?
    Why?

    Bonus: Your new neighbors are too loud, what do you do?
