I’m always looking for questions to ask my characters; anything to pull them out of their shell and see how they act in foreign territory. I wondered what it would be like if my characters participated in other Middle Grade and Young Adult stories. How would they act in Narnia, or at Hogwarts? It’s interesting to see how your characters act in a completely different setting.
Interview questions for your character based on “Thirteen Reasons Why.”
1)Does your character have a crush or hidden admiration for someone that they haven’t shared with that person?
2)Has your character been let down by the adults/authority figures in their life? How did they respond?
3)What is your characters “reputation” in their school/community? Is the reputation well earned? What will your character do to change their reputation?
4)If your character moved to a new school/community, would they worry about making friends? What clique/club/group would they wind up in?
5)What kind of catastrophe, if any, would cause your character to reach a point of no return?
