I'm hoping to write a novel for older preteens and young teens. My protagonists are a brother and sister who are twins. After trying to think of a way to develop them to give myself an idea of how to handle them in the story, I came up with the idea of an interview earlier today. What I did was place myself in the role of an interviewer who wanted to know more about the characters. In Microsoft Word, I started typing questions, and had the characters answer them. My thought was that I might be able to "discover" quite a bit about the characters by doing that. Has anyone ever done that or heard of it being done? To those of you who have more experience than I do (which would be almost everybody, lol), does my idea sound reasonable?
