The Fun Theory

There is an animal training principle that works really well with people too: make it easy to do the right thing and hard to do the wrong thing. Someone has come up with a variant of this: make it fun to do the right thing. Several examples demonstrate that when you make something fun, people are much more likely to do it. Welcome to ... The Fun Theory.

Characterization Meme

I found this list of wonderful characterization questions, courtesy of siadea:

01. What would your character die for?
02. What would they refuse to do under any circumstances?
03. What do they dream about?
04. What single object would they be most hard pressed to part with? Why?
05. What is their fondest memory?
06. What is their worst memory?
07. What or who was were their most significant influence?
08. What would be their biggest nightmare?
09. What makes them laugh?
10. Who is the most important person in their life?
11. Is your character a virgin? If not, who was their first?
12. Ask whatever question you want!
