EXERCISE The One Word Test: Character Interview #9

Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by - Falcon -, Feb 5, 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:
    What do you wear to work? Honor


    What does friendship mean to you?
    How do you prove you care for your friends?
    How do you deal with conflict?
    How do you deal with major differences of opinion?
    How do you “choose your battles” ?
    What does love mean to you?
    How do you see love?
    How do you express love?
    How do you feel about cheating?

    Bonus: What would you do for Valentines day?
