Hey all, I was wondering something and at the same time I wanted to share something, though I'm not sure if it would be wanted. I've been writing my whole life but I'm kind of new to the whole tips and tricks thing. So maybe this has been mentioned before (I know 'interview' has). I noticed a lot of topics about trying to get to know your character better. I was wondering if there is anyone here who does what I start doing recently; really make it an interview. I don't list questions (though I have some questions open in another word pad) but I make it somewhat of a story. For instant, I start describing my character sitting in front of me, or wherever I picture him/her, and I open a dialogue. Example (Not asking for critique): And so on. I actually make it like I talk to them, have a real interview with them, and I find it works very well for me. Is there someone who does this too? Are there any more tips and tricks to this, any significant questions to ask other than the basic stuff?
