Not long ago I saw a blog post where the author had interviewed her main character and posted that interview. I've seen other authors who do the same thing but hadn't really thought much about it.
Now, I do interview my characters at times. It's a way for me to get to know them, what they are all about and discover things about their past which might be relevant to the story I'm writing at the time. But I've never posted these for anyone to see.
But, I can sorta see reasons to do this...
The reader gets to know your character on a more personal, deeper level.
The reader gets to know things about the character other than what's in the story, which could be cool.
And as a writer, anything that connects the reader with our characters is a good thing.
But my question is to you, the reader. Well, I have a couple questions but I'll start with you, the reader.:-)
Do you enjoy these character interviews? Do you even read 'em?
Now, what about you, the writer?
Have you ever posted character interviews? If so, what kind of response did you get? If not, have you thought about trying this?
