Character Survey for The End Of The World Is Nigh


Please note: All of the questions are optional, but the more information I have about you, the better I’ll be able to write you as a character if you don’t tell me anything I’m going to make it all up.

Full Name:
Do you have a nickname?
Current hometown:
Favorite city:
How would you describe yourself physically?
How would someone else describe you physically?
The first thing people notice about you is…
Hair Color/Eye Color/Race?
Religion, if any?
Sexual orientation?
Do you smoke/drink?   If so, what?   Any bad habits?
Current occupation/Dream job:
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
What is your zombie outbreak survival plan?
Weapon of choice:
Do you have any special skills?
Did you go to college and, if so, what for?
Any pets?   If so, what are they and what are their names?
What is your favorite animal?
Speaking of pets, any pet peeves?
Favorite/Least favorite Food:
Favorite Film?   Favorite ZOMBIE film?
Favorite author/book?
Favorite band/song?   Least favorite band/song?
What is your favorite quotation/motto/saying?
What is the best thing that ever happened to you?
What is the worst thing that ever happened to you?
What is the best thing you’ve ever done?
What is the best thing you’ve ever done?
If you could kill one person, consequence free, who would it be?
Would you prefer your character to be a survivor or a zombie or a survivor and then a zombie?
Anything else you think would help to know about you to make your character believable?
Any questions you think should be on the survey?

I will also most likely contact you with follow-up questions as your character and the story evolves.
If you give me enough material there’s no reason why I won’t be able to mix your character in with other characters and evolve a more coherent narrative for everyone involved.
Remember, as much as I may be the author and creative coordinator for the project, this is YOUR book.
