Part of writing fiction is knowing your characters. Of course you already know their ages, names and physical characteristic.

But if your characters are children, what can you tell me about gifts they've recently received?

  • Did your characters write a wish list?
  • Did they receive what was on the list?
  • What surprise gifts did they receive?
  • How did they show their excitement?
  • Were they disappointment if they didn't receive a gift they'd asked for? If so, how do you know?
  • Will their gifts help them with their quest?
  • Who gave them their gifts?
  • How did they receive the gifts? In person, by mail, left under a tree?
  • Did they rip off the wrapping paper? Or did they take their time?
  • Did they write a thank you note or thank people in person?

I'm hoping to have a few free minutes later today to figure out the answer to all these questions and more. My real life kids are busy with their new toys, giving me some time to think and write. It's a great gift for a busy mom.

What about your characters? What gifts would they receive?
