Character development

This is a compilation of character questions I found here and links from there. I added some, and rewrote some. It is a nice exercise to get to know your characters better, and a funny way to pass the time if you want to write, but don’t know about what. 😉

Have fun!

Write down the names of 10 of your characters, then answer the following questions:

  1. 4 invites 3 and 8 to dinner at their house. What happens?
  2. 9 tries to get 5 to go to a strip club. What happens?
  3. 5 needs to stay somewhere other than home for the night. Do they chose 1 or 6?
  4. 2 and 7 are making out. 10 walks in. What is their reaction?
  5. 3 falls in love with 5. 8 is jealous. What happens?
  6. 4 jumps you in a dark alleyway. Who comes to your rescue: 10, 2, or 7?
  7. 1 decides to make dinner. Fifteen minutes later, what is happening?
  8. 2 writes a book about his/her life. What is 5’s review of it?
