Character Interview - A Worksheet For Beginners

Character Interview – A Worksheet For Beginners


Writers Write is your one-stop resource for writers. If you’re looking for a starting point for creating a character, you will enjoy this character interview worksheet.

If you want to write a good story, you need to create believable characters. The four main characters are the most important, but all characters should be well-rounded.

You want your reader to feel that they could be that character, or that they could possibly meet that character (even if your story is set in a different universe). If you take time to think about where they came from and what their traits and beliefs and habits are, you will be able to do this.

Lee White’s character interview will kick-start your journey into your character’s past.
