Diane made a comment today that sparkles:
…I stopped using questionnaires because I couldn’t figure a way to use them naturally. Perhaps if I were writing a reading for them….
Like Diane, I find it difficult to use the questionnaires naturally (the perfect word to describe what happens) and also Leigh Anne indicated that we could spend a lot of time, too much, on them anyway, and always at risk of going out of bounds.
So what Diane said is something we should remember. After stories, when we create the readings from them as per Step 3 of TPRS, we can just grab some questionnaires and embed some details about the kids into those readings. It would shock them, and shocking reading is compelling reading.
This is one of those fine jewels of an idea that we often forget so that is why I am making it into a separate article so thanks Diane for this idea.
