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 “The Hobbit.”
1)Does you character crave adventure or would they prefer hearth and home?
2)Would your character do something that violated the norms and mores of their society, even if it meant they would be looked down upon for ever?
3)How would your character deal with the hardships of a long journey?
4)How would your character deal with a character like Gollum?
5)Would your character be likely to write down the events of his/her journey for future generations to appreciate?
