Do you know how to conduct an interview?

Writers need to understand their characters. twitter-click to tweet

 

And what better way to understand a character than asking questions?

A while back I was inspired by Dan Alatorre to play around with character interviews. It was a lot of fun.

One of my readers loved the idea so much he took it a step further and did not one, but four interviews of the characters in his upcoming book. What a fun read!

Here is the link to the first interview. The other three are just as entertaining. I loved them all! Great job Budgie. You can definitely use these as marketing tools.

Blood Drive Interview 1: Christian MAY 16, 2017

I think it’s great when an author like Dan, shares an idea and the idea takes on a life of its own.

  1. This is a plausible idea for me. I keep on trying to fill out those profile worksheets but it gets so boring. Maybe I just need to modify the worksheets so they end up as interview questions that will hopefully spark more creativity.
