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.
