EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #26

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Aug 11, 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

    How do you deal with grief?
    How do you cope?
    What do you do to remember those past?
    Funeral arrangements?
    How do you celebrate the life of another?
    what do you toast to?
    What are your favorite memories?
    What are the hardest?
    Are there things that remind you?

    When do you cry?
