The forum member Yandos, and his thread here, http://www.writingforums.org/showthread.php?t=38458, inspired this thread. Basically, a Character Clinic is to help people flesh out their characters. You post a brief summary of what you have of your character -- name, occupation, age, what is their primary goal and motivation in the story, and what are their fears/threats/setbacks -- and say what you'd like help fleshing out. Then, other members can use the Socratic Method to ask your character lots of questions that you answer in their voice - basically to help you develop your character further. This holds similarities with the "What would your MC do?" game, but that thread is often filled with vague questions and one-word answers that don't do much good. I mean, that thread is a fun game and a great idea, but can't be relied on to deeply flesh out a character because the undeveloped nature of most of the questions/answers there. Besides, on there -- while it's a fun thread -- you're limited to one question to answer, and sometimes that question doesn't apply to your character at all. Here, you get several questions designed with your MC in mind that will specifically help you expand on him/her where you want expansion. Enjoy! Oh, and please keep questions specific and tailored, and answers open-ended and substantial. This will keep it moving along. It's easiest to give relevant and helpful questions custom-suited to your character if you give some specific info about what you're stuck on and what in the story you need help with - otherwise it's just "getting to know you" type interviews and that's not really the purpose of a clinic. You're not limited to only the person posting right before you. Anyone can "doctor" anyone's character.
