character “cheat” chart

I found this in one of my boxes yesterday, but can’t remember where it comes from. If it’s yours and you’d like to claim credit, please do. If it’s yours and you’d like me to take it down, just let me know. 🙂

But I think it’s an interesting set of questions/thoughts to ask yourself (and your character) about them. You might not want or need to answer all of them. Or any of them. But figured it might help focus some of us.
