queenoftheskies mentions The Writer’s Five, a new LiveJournal community that posts five questions for writers each week on Wednesday. I feel a pressing urge to post something here besides YouTube videos, so I’m in.
These questions are all about a character, so I’m choosing Morlock Ambrosius, only continuing character of mine that’s made it into print.
1 – What is your character’s favorite color? Does he own anything that color?
Morlock’s favorite color is probably red, but he can’t wear it and doesn’t own anything in that color.
2 – Your character wants to read a book or rent a movie – what would he/she choose?
Morlock would read a book, I think. His only interest in a video player and TV set would be in taking them apart to see how they work.
3 – Does your character have any siblings? Do they get along?
He has two sisters in his birth family and five brothers in his adoptive family. He’s pretty detached from all of them, but probably closest to one of his sisters.
4 – Has your character ever had a hangover? How did it happen?
Morlock is a drunk, with increasing and lengthening periods of sobriety in middle age.
5 – What is your character’s main mode of transportation?
Mostly he walks. But at one point he acquires a horse named Velox (seen here in the foreground).
