One of the best ways to develop and learn your character is to place them in situation and imagine what they would do. Instead of “commanding” them to do what you want, let them play it out on their own. The things we put them through will show readers exactly who they are, as apposed to being told who and taking the author’s word for it. That doesn’t usually make for the most interesting story. But how well do you really know your character? Enough to know they would…
How it works:
The first person to comment will answer the initial question, then they will post their own question. Share your character’s name, and why or under what circumstances they would or wouldn’t do it. Feel free to include a short example. After you’ve answered, you may pose your own question. Some examples of what and how you can ask:
a. Why would your character wear a bathrobe in public?
b. Which one of your characters would steal a gun?
c. If there is someone, who and why would they threaten to take everything from him?
d. Your character can choose to fight and win their point or give up and walk away, what would he do? Why, and what would it prove?
Keep it PG-13. There are kids on this site.
If you do not understand the question, you may ask. However, if you don’t know how to answer it, please wait to post until you do.
Please don’t go off topic. You can create a new thread or PM someone if you wish.
You can answer and pose questions as much as you like, but remember to give everyone a turn. If someone has answered that question already, you can still post an answer, but it would be preferred that you answered the unanswered question.
It’s preferred that you use a character example that is from an available Wattpad book, so other players can enjoy learning more about your character. If it is a book you plan on posting soon, this works, also.
Which one, and why would one of your characters steal an umbrella from a random person on the street?
