  2. What is the best and brightest moment they experience during the story? 
  3. What are the emotional places your characters are afraid to go to? 
  4. Is there a place/city/room where they will never go? Why? 
  5. If they were permanently leaving town, what would they easily throw out? What would they refuse to part with? (Why?) 
  6. What do they want (consciously and tangibly)? 
  7. On the other hand: what do they need (on the emotional, subconscious level)? 
  8. If they could change one thing about themselves, what would it be? 
  9. What is the most humiliating event of their life? 
  10. What things do they turn to when they need a bit of hope?
