Writing Tip: 20 Slightly Intrusive Questions to Ask Your Characters

If you're anything like me, you know some pretty wild information about your best friend.

I was thinking about that this week and it made me realize that in order to truly get to know the characters that we are writing about, shouldn't we know all of their unusual quirks, obscure hobbies, and bizarre interests?

The answer to that question is yes!  We've been having a pretty slow week at work so here are 20 Slightly Intrusive Questions to Get to Know your Characters that I brainstormed.

1. What is their favorite ice cream flavor?
2. What is their idea of the perfect first date?
3. How is their bedroom decorated?
4. What is their living situation like?
5. What is the first thing they would drink after sitting down at the bar?
6. What song would they sing during karaoke night?
7. Do they prefer chocolate or vanilla?
8. Do they prefer TV, books, or neither?
9. What do they do in their free time?
10. What is their dream career?
11. What toppings do they put on their pizza?
12. Who is their celebrity crush?
13. What trait do they admire most in other humans?
14. What is their secret talent?
15. What is one thing that they wish they could do?
16. What is their biggest dream?
17. Who do they admire most?
18. Who would play them in the movie version of their tale?
19. What is their favorite movie?
20. Who is their favorite family member?

What questions would you ask your characters?
