100Q to Develop a Character
100 Questions to Develop a Detailed Character
Ever have trouble deciding what side of an argument your character will take? Do you have trouble remembering small details about your character, and often change them accidentally in the middle of a story? Try this list of one hundred questions to solidify your knowledge of your character. Feel free to use this and post it as its own deviation. Just please link it to me in a comment if you do. Try to answer the questions in as much specific detail as possible. This is for you, so there is no use in cheating on it. I would suggest doing two for each character: one for the beginning of your story, and one for the end, to reflect the changes that happen.
1. What is your character's name? Do they have a nickname?
2. Is your character male or female? What is their sexuality? What role does it play in your story?
3. How old is your character? Does their age matter to them emotionally or socially?
4. How tall is your character? Does it affect the

Character Development OC Questionnaire
I see a lot of "OC questionnaires" and stuff that are really silly and goofy... and that's great, but I'd really love a serious one to help with character development. I also wanted on that asks the actual character the questions, so they can respond. So here is my attempt to create a useful questionnaire to fill out using your characters. I made this with the intention of using one character, but feel free to choose several characters and rotate them between questions. 

The most important part of this is to be thorough. I tried my best to stay away from "yes/no" questions, but elaborate. If your character is one that doesn't speak much, feel free to include their unspoken thoughts as well. 
Also, I tried to stay vague so that you can fill this question out with your 16 year old high school student OC, but also with your 23 year old Ninja Warrior from feudal Japan. And probably your random closed species giraffe/shark hybrid too.

OC Exercise: The Best Cure for Writers Block
'Ello, Kitsune here. As many of you know, I'm currently working on a novel that is taking over my life. Recently, I've been having trouble keeping the personalities of my characters (who have changed a lot over the near eight years that I've been working on my novel) completely straight. I know my main character well enough, since the story follows her life closely, but sometimes I feel like I don't know everyone else in my world enough. 


I'm sure you've all seen the character profiles before. (Name, age, height, physical description, likes, dislikes, etc.) I have filled out more of those than I care to admit, but they very seldom help. Therefore, I came up with this "OC Exercise" to help you get to know your characters better. The best part is, it will even get you some writing practice!


:lightbulb: I highly suggest posting your finished products on deviantart and requesting a critique. This will not only help with your actual writing, but it mi
