Hire Me!

Writing Wednesday 15

So, this month’s Writing Wednesday series is going to focus on my characters for my WIP. Here’s the second interview!

First and foremost, your name and a little bit about you.

Dwyn. I have a twin brother. I love the lakes and rivers. This town isn’t big enough for me anymore.

Which talent would you most want to have?

If an unearthly talent counts, then underwater breathing. I hear there are mermaids in the sea, so maybe I could join them. If I must stick with conventional talents, then flexibility, as in bodily flexibility. Back-bends and contortions and that nonsense.

On which occasions do you lie, if ever?

I’d lie to keep a secret, but I’d also lie to get out of a deathly situation. I try to be honest in my life, without casting sugar on painful situations. A life in trading, however, showed me a grey area between lies and honesty—“persuading” would be a gentle word for it, actually. Let’s call it persuasion instead of lying.

Would you rather survive in a damp cave or an expansive desert?

Damp cave. I’ve lived my whole love in the desert, worked most of my recent years under a scorching sun, and as much as I like to be warm, some humidity might be a welcome change.

Which would be a more painful way of dying: drowning, or burning?

Burning. As much as I love the sun, I wouldn’t want to feel like I’m swimming in it.

If you could be reincarnated, what or who would you like to be in another life?

Mermaid. Mermaid. Mermaid. Or a bundle of algae.
