Writing Wednesday 16

This month’s Writing Wednesday series hosts interviews with characters from my WIP. Here’s one of the supporting characters.

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

Thank you for having me here. I am Imani. I am twenty years old and a very optimistic person.

What makes you laugh so hard you cry?

My sister, when she is at her best. She has always been silly and goofy.

Where do you go when you’re angry?

When I am angry and upset, I go to the forest trails outside of my village. It is the opposite of quiet: birds, wind, my footsteps all bring me back to the world.

You see two paths in front of you: one leads to a vine-covered set of ruins, and the other leads to a small cottage. Which path are you drawn to?

I am drawn to the small cottage. I imagine it in the early twilight and smoke floats out of a chimney, and a light shines through many windows.

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

I prefer not to answer. My parents and their siblings drowned many years ago.

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

I would like to be a person born into a city like the one near the lake or in one over the mountains.
