This week’s Writer’s Five.

Questions about where your main character lives

Answered for Morlock, as usual.

1 – What type of home is it?

Morlock is essentially homeless, so he lives wherever he is. By preference he’ll live in a cave, but he moves around a lot; he might be camping out or sleeping in an inn on any given night.

2 – What city do you live in? or if not a city where?

Anywhere from the deserts and jungles of Qajqapqca to Wuruyaarria, the werewolf city in the far north of Laent.

3 – Is your home messy?

Not too much. He wants his things where he can get them when he has to move on, which might be any time. He’s lost almost everything he once had, so he may be somewhat irrationally protective of the stuff he has left.

4 – Do you live alone?

Usually, but not always. Sometimes he travels with other people, and he once had an apprentice who lived and travelled with him.

5 – Where do you eat the majority of your meals?

Wherever he happens to be. He’ll buy them made if he’s in or near a town, from a tavern or a cookshop; if he’s on the road he’ll make them himself. But it would never be haute cuisine; food is just fuel as far Morlock is concerned.
