Because I wanted to see something that really got into the nitty gritty details of a character.
I tried to organize it into sections and equalize the amount of writing you’d be doing each day, but obviously that’s going to vary from character to character. Good luck, and may the force be with you.
Below you will find roleplay tool that I have used for almost a decade now; one hundred questions about your character’s background, personality, physical appearance, skills, equipment / accessories / attire, strengths, weaknesses, abilities and many other intricacies that help flesh out a character to a more three-dimensional personae. The original posting can be found here. I hope that others may find this useful!
1. Do not kill yourself. Killing yourself is very messy and your mother will cry over you. It is not beautiful or brave, and even if it was, you will not be around to see that.
2. Washing your hair is going to be a chore. But you should do it anyway. Because you will feel better about yourself.
3. Get up late. Have a lay in. Sleep past your alarm. You have a very long life ahead of you and for now you should appreciate the cold side of your pillow.
4. He is going to break your heart but he’s just another male human who finds it hard to deal with Mondays, too. So in a month you’ll wake up and you won’t even remember that little scar on his knuckle you kissed.
5. Don’t spend hours looking up what your name means on google. Your name is your name and you should go out there and do heroic and good deeds and give your name your own meaning.
6. Don’t fight your demons. Your demons are here to teach you lessons. Sit down with your demons and have a drink and a chat and learn their names and talk about the burns on their fingers and scratches on their ankles. Some of them are very nice.
7. Music is good for your soul. Rap music will energise you and boost your ego and pop music will cheer you up. Indie music will make you think and emotional songs will make you cry and think about that boy again. It’s healthy.
8. Victim complexes are not attractive. Boys and girls will not date you because you are sad. They are not going to date you and kiss your aching bones and cure you of your dragging depression. Wake up. Take a bath. Do your hair. Be attractive.
9. Sadness is not poetic. Depression is not beautiful. Laying in bed all day and eating too much is lazy and disgusting and it is not tragic or pretty. Get up. Go outside. Let the sun warm your bones. Live.
10. If it makes you happy, buy twenty of it. Dedicate your life to it. Print it on tv shirts and collect things and draw art of it. Do not care what people think. They are the unhappy people you need to avoid. The abuse they will hurl at you is painless compared to how sad they are. Pity them. Remain happy.
11. You are allowed to he angry. But the world is not working against you. The flowers do not bloom for you and when your mother shouts ask her if she is okay instead of thinking she hates you. She never will. The world walks beside you and is silent. It does not trip you up or carry you.
12. Day and night cycles are natural. Humans only sleep at night because we used to avoid predators in the dark because of our poor eyesight. Stay awake until 5am watching bad reality shows. Wake up at 7pm and have breakfast.
13. Eat when you are hungry. Being bored does not constitute a chocolate bar. Sleep with you are tired. Do not mindlessly obey the sleep at night rule. If you are not tired, do not sleep.
27) FFFFFFFFFFF they’re tall and skinny.w. (WE JUST WENT OVER THIS)
29) I’m a horrible liar but the first thing that came to mind was when I was jealous of my friend and I didn’t express it until I was kind of comfortable with coming to terms with it. I know it’s not exactly lying, but I still felt like I was hiding something from them.
44) Ummmm, I have an extra baby tooth? owo;; It’s just randomly there in my bottom jaw. It’s never grown out or anything since it would have by now (I known about it ever since I was seven years old). It’s just a tiny odd deformity I have and it makes for a good random fact =u= ~

Karen’s family are asking people to please help out a son who is trying to help his mom pay her hospital bill. Please help, spread the word Hi I am Patrick a 15 year old son who is trying to help out his mother pay her huge hospital bill my mom had lost her decent paying job last year and has been unemployed for about 7 months until she found a small nannying job but isn’t paying much. My mom then one day had trouble breathing and rushed home after work complaining of difficulty breathing and heading straight to the hospital doctors said she is lucky to be alive that if she had gotten there a little later she would have died they had found multiple blood clots in her lungs which caused her to be in the hospital for about 2 and a half weeks please help us out I don’t want to see my mom struggle like she is right now.. Thank you for all your help.
11) I HAVE SEVERAL. Really, anyone who truly wants to be my friend usually gets bumped up to Best Friend level becausewow they must be amazing and have wonderful tolerance for someone like me uwu but if I had to narrow it down then I guess I’d say I have three very important friends in my life who have helped me a lot, so thank you uwu (I wont mention their names though because PRIVACY, MANG).
17) Kind of relates to my first question. Currently two of the three best friends that I have don’t live where I live anymore because of college and it makes me a very sad Kira u-u we have skype and messaging but IT’S NOT THE SAME AND I JUST MISS THEIR FACES. So yeah, there are two peeps that I’m missing a lot right now ;w;
28) Ugh, man. Just… have you met someone that always HAS to be right? Like, the fate of the world doesn’t depend on it, but if you disagree with them then you’re somehow the asshole because they’re “omg so perfect” that going against their word is blasphemy? Yeah. They’re like that >.>
43) WHY WOULD YOU ASK THIS. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS. MY DESCRIPTION OF SEXY IS NOT THE SAME AS OTHER PEOPLE’S DESCRIPTION.
