10 Questions to ask of your character

Do you know the character in your upcoming story? You as the author should. I have had characters that seem to take on a life of their own as the story develops, and I suppose that is to be expected at times. It makes an interesting story to have a character that will be something that even the author was not expecting. (Imagination is spontaneous, and cannot be planned) So with that said, on with the list.

Question # 1:  Are you male or female?

Question #2: Where do you live? City, State, Country.

Question #3: What is your profession?

Question #4: Do you have a police record?

Question #5: What is your family background?

Question #6: What is your level of education?

Question #7: Do you have any distinguishing physical characteristics?

Question #8: What is your dream occupation?

Question #9: From what do you draw happiness?

Question #10: What is your greatest fear?

These are basic  questions that will give you a good idea  of what your character will be like. There may be others that you have used as well. Please feel free to use these questions to develop your character.
