Character

Story Engineering by Larry Brooks, devotes eight chapters to the role of character in a story.   The most valuable bit comes at the end od chapter 15, where he lists questions you should ask about your character.

I’ve always loved the Proust Questionnaire, and I wonder if it could be used as a way of getting to know your characters before you dive in and write your outline.
