Kate used her imagination to create Edward's character. He's just a doll, but he has a whole lot of personality! Any inanimate object can be a great character for a story, as long as you give them a little attitude. How might a shoe feel about being stuck on someone's foot all day? Do the hands of a clock get dizzy? Is leftover lasagna relieved or disappointed when you pack it into a tupperware and put it in the fridge?
Choose an object in your house and "interview" it. Write down your questions in a Q & A format. Here are a few to get you started:
How did you become a ___ ?
What's your favorite part about your job?
Do you have any friends? Do you get along with any other inanimate objects in the house?
