EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #13

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Jun 4, 2015.

  1. 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:
