A Holiday Quiz for your Main Character, by Lindsay Bandy

Happy holidays to all!

It can be hard to focus on your writing this time of year, so here’s a  quick little activity to enjoy. Once you have your main character’s answers down, ask your antagonist, too. You might find out something new about your characters….or even yourself!

Have fun, and share your answers in the comments!


  1. What’s your favorite holiday treat?
  2. How important is tradition to you this time of year? Got a favorite? A least favorite?
  3. Are you missing someone special?
  4. Are you a present-peeker?
  5. What’s at the top of your wish list?
  6. What’s something that you want that can’t be wrapped?
  7. Who’s your most annoying relative?
  8. Are you on the naughty list, or the nice list?
  9. Do you believe in Santa?
  10. Who do you want to meet under the mistletoe?

  1. This was a fun quiz, Lindsay! I can’t decide who my MC’s least favorite relative is. Being an only child, perhaps she just wishes she had more for an even bigger family celebration! Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  2. Hmm… was number 10 written by a Romance Author? LOL. This is a very challenging quiz since none of my characters even know what Christmas is or the subsequent vocabulary! But I can culturally interpret their responses, and that’s an interesting viewpoint too. Thanks for the stretch! =)
