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 “Suite Scarlett.”
1)What specialized school would your character want to attend? What would their best subject be?
2)If they were in a play, would your character be the star of the show, a bit player, the director, the designer, the art dept…?
3)Does your character have siblings? If so, which are they closest too? Which do they have issues with? Have they ever had to face the possibility of losing that sibling to illness?
4)If your characters parents/family were in financial trouble, what would he/she do to help?
5)Is your character a good problem solver? Able to think on his/her feet? What’s an example of a time when they had to come up with a fast solution to a problem?
