Prompt 17: Character Interview

Stuck? Having a difficult time feeling inspired to write? This prompt is all about one of my favorite things to do when I just don’t know what else to do.

Character Interview

Think of a place you’d like to sit and chat with someone if you had the opportunity to do that. Maybe it’s your home office, a library, the park, a beach or a coffee house. Let it be something you’re familiar with and don’t really need to think to hard about the setting.

Now, pour your character a cup of coffee and start talking. Write out the dialogue as if you are really chatting.

Have fun getting to know your inner character. You might be surrpised at what your character tells you… and asks you.
