What Would Your Character Say/Do Wednesday

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 Warriors.”

1)If your character belonged to a “clan” what kind would it be?

2)What role would your character play in the clan?

3)Does your character’s clan cooperate with or war against the other clans?

4)What would your characters warrior name be?

5)Does your character have an easy life, but a lack of freedom or a hard but independent life?


  1. I love asking my characters their thoughts, what they would do in certain situations. I know what I would do, but I don't know what they would do without asking!

    Great questions!!!

  2. I'm going to use William Leightner ( I just thought of his last name, and I'm so excited about it.
    1) William does sort of belong to a clan. He is part of a small group of men that call themselved The Dukes, because they don't want to give their true identities to anyone. William is the Duke of Leawood.

    2)William would be the up and coming leader, the "next in line"

    3)The Dukes war against canibals and cooperate with anyone who feels the same.

    4) Lightstar

    5) He has a hard life with a lot of freedom, except during most of the course of this story he is in prison.

  3. Interesting scenario, I'll have to think about this one.


  4. I've never read the books (my 8 yo has) so I couldn't answer these questions. My mc isn't into fantasy, so she probably wouldn't care anyway. ;)

  5. OOh good ones-- off to ponder over a cup of (strong) coffee!

  6. Great exercise to better understand your character.
