EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #3

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Aug 4, 2014.

  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 does your family see you?
    How do your friends see you?
    How do your coworkers see you?
    How does your love interest see you?
    What life philosophy do you follow?
    Why?
    What would you change about yourself if you could?
    Why?
    What would you change about the world if you could?
    Why

    Bonus:
    You're being hunted by soldiers from an enemy nation, how do you survive?
