September’s Saturday Character Questionnaire

Here we are at the third Saturday in September and the third installment of September’s Saturday Character Questionnaire.  If you’ve been following along, you already have 160 questions in your notebook that will help you build a three dimensional hero/heroine.  (Or should have. *wink*)  In case you’ve missed the last couple posts, you can find them here…

Shall we continue?  You may want to bring out a few snacks for your character this time.  These are deeper and thought provoking.  It may take a while for them to answer. *wink*

I’d like to thank Anastasia V. Pergakis for allowing me to share this mother of all character interviews with all of you.  It’s her list and she was wonderful to compile it!

Come back next week to get the final four parts and complete the building of your full-of-life character.  See you then!

The link for 5-8 is broken. Glad I could find it on the front page still, though! Great questions, going to have fun answering them.
