Q) The Main character: He/she or it? Nationality, colouring (skin, hair), name, build, personality type, rich/poor, class, hobbies, level of intelligence A) Currently I see the Narrator as genderless, classless etc, I have not seen the Main Characters in my mind's eye yet. I think they will come once the story begins to be written. They are likely to be based on us as authors. I like the idea of using our real Timelines, the co-incidences and differences.
Q) What does the main character want to be when they grow up? A) Free to continuously choose whatever they want to be. There could be two different 'Career Paths', one that is a Spiral of connected professions, the other that is an Expert of increasing intensity.
Q) What will bring fulfillment? A) The "Hero" will change. If we are using our Timelines, they will be fromthe 1960's onwards.
Q) Who are their friends?
Q) What are their parents like?
Q) Do they have 2 parents? A) Yes, two parents - not a strong feature. Recognisable as 'being there' for their kids.
Q) Do we want them to have a boy/girl-friend at some point? A) Yes, but this is not the main focus, education is.
Q) What experiences do we use to show that they are first of all not Co-Active and progressively learning how to become Co-Active. A) We have dozens of experiences in our Timelines to choose from
Q) How long do we want them to be in each period of their school life? A) About a year at each level.
Q) Which schools do we want to describe? Primary, Junior, High, Upper, College? A) All of them, one year at each.
Q) What do they enjoy at school? What don't they enjoy at school? A) I will let the character tell me that as they get created, based on what we like
Q) How can we use what they do and don't enjoy to describe evoking transformation? A) We can use what evoked transformation in us.
Q) What is the trauma that will bring them into process? A) There's so much to choose from in our lives.
