EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #22

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS' started by - Falcon -, Apr 5, 2016.

  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:
    What do you wear to work? Honor

    What kind of shopping do you enjoy?
    What is a splurge item?
    What do you buy that makes you feel special?
    What do you buy to fit a need?
    What do you hate buying?
    What do you enjoy shopping for?
    What is the hardest to pick out?hat makes you happy?
    And why?
    Favorite kind of store?
    Favorite people to shop with?


    Bonus: If you could buy anything what would it be?

    Thank you to @Midian for your help with this one.
