The questions I ask myself…

This is how I nail down what I know about my major characters. I fill out this form in a font that matches the handwriting I imagine, add in pictures that I think are right, and fill it out in their voice. This is really a combination of a lot of character development worksheets that I did for acting. The minor characters don’t need most of this so I have a much shorter form for them (which I will post at another time).
