This is the first of several pages of my interview with one of my secondary characters. Although I have to say the more time I spend with her, the more I like her. She has a story to tell, I really hadn’t thought of a second book. However it is becoming more and more likely. And I haven’t gotten into my actual story writing yet. Crazy writer walking.
Currently I have two character interviews and the more I write about my MMC, the more I hope something happens and either redeems his flaws or … Yeah I don’t know. We will have to wait and see.
I think I want to do one more interview with another secondary character that has popped up while trying to get a feel for the story. She is Caleb’s assistant, Paula. At first she seemed more his secretary, however I am getting the feeling he views her as an equal, his partner. Hmmm might be some romantic tension in play.
If you are curious about my process for conducting these “interviews”. I sit with my notebook and think of my character and then think of my question. Sometimes random tidbits pop in here and there, like the whole Area 51 thing. Gisella was chatty, while Cody was not. Like with most interviews, some questions are skipped over or completely ignored. Just be patient and open yourself up to your character. You never know what might be on their minds.
