I need YOUR help ;P

with character development

So if any of you have parents / aunts / uncles / family friends, or know anyone in their 40's, preferably early to mid rather than late, no matter how remotely, leave me some information please?

just like, male or female, approx. age, if they have children and if so how many, etc
their jobs
if they've had any other jobs, if so, what were they, how long did they keep them for
what they do in their spare time, in family time, their hobbies, interests, favourite tv shows even
what things are important to them, what concerns them, what world events catch their attention
blah blah blah
what do they talk about a lot, do they bring up old memories much or talk about the future, or present, or recent memories?
do they talk about / see family; parents, siblings, nephews, nieces, etc
and how they feel about their in laws
just anything, pretty much
thanks (:

I want to write a story that is the length of a decent sized novel

i have several stories on the go, i have one which def won't be long, and the other, eh...
There is one serious contender for it, the Ten Years Today one. Except I still don't know what I'm doing with it.
I'll put up the beginnings of the others later

p.s. i must do this coz someone told me i can't stick to it long enough to write a novel length story ^_^
and you know what i'm like with proving people wrong..
