In honor of Dragon's Whisper hitting two milestones this week (the novella mark and the halfway mark), I'm going to do an conversation/interview with my female protoganist, Rael.
Welcome, Rael. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Rael: You already know my name. Isn't that enough?
Not quite, Rael.
Rael: I am a wanted criminal, and that is why you can't know any more. It could be used against me, later.
I promise that the authorities won't hear a word of this conversation, Rael. Give us something more.
Rael: *eyes me suspiciously* I'm not sure I trust you. What do you want to know, anyway?
I should have chosen a different character. Tell us where you live, and why you're a criminal, to start with.
Rael: I live in the forest. I lead my group of Believers. Satisfied?
Not quite. What do you believe?
Rael: We follow Joshua, the Maker's son. The dragons that took the Village didn't approve. So we're outlaws now. Happy?
I guess. I'm not going to get much more out of you, am I? So go on. *shoos Rael away*
That was a bit of a disaster. Maybe I should have chosen a different character. Oh well, we'll try this again some other time, with a friendlier character.
