EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #5

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Oct 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 do you deal with grief?
    How do you express joy?
    What is your expression on a day to day basis?
    If told you were one a of a few chosen people who could save the world, would you do it?
    Why?
    For you, what would be the hardest part of that journey?
    What adventure would you choose to go on?
    Why?
    Who would you bring with you?

    Bonus:
    You find you've been turned into a small animal against your will, what is your reaction?
