What if you and your character(s) sat down across from each other and just…had a conversation?
Pick one character or a set of characters that go together and can answer questions as a unit.
Feel free to do this as many of these as you want!
Have a conversation with your characters! Don't just robotically ask questions :) Discuss their replies with them, at least a little. Pretend they're really sitting across from you.
Be as in-depth as you'd like! Feel free to elaborate as much as you want in your discussion surrounding each question.
As you're talking to your character, take down notes of their body-language. How did they react to the question? Are they being honest when they answer that you an tell? Are they comfortable in this environment, or not?
Lastly, @Young-Dusty you are legally forbade from reading Paint's interview. I'll post the questions separately if you want to do this, but ya gonna have to go example-less :)
(These were thought up by the NaNoWriMo team, you can watch their video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2CDUyxIC9I
