NaNo Forums: Characterisation & Winning

What crazy things do you do to get into the heads of your characters?
Best ones:
- conversations with characters: I do this when in bed, usually they talk amongst themselves, actually
- dressing up as character, affecting mannerisms: Never tried this, will do it tomorrow, sounds like a fucking laugh! Will need to get up earlier though, dammit.
- interviews. I've done this before and it worked well, have definitely got to do more exercises.
