A-to-Z post: Q


For the A-to-Z Challenge, I’ve been interviewing characters from my and/or my twin’s fiction: protagonists and supporting-cast characters and mere walk-ons (or major characters who began as mere walk-ons — ask Geoffrey sometime how he got his start), and even a few who haven’t had any page-time… yet.

Today, I got nothin’… 😦

I used to have one character whose surname began with Q, and I considered hauling him out of whatever limbo discarded characters go to when they prove themselves entirely unsuited for whatever story they were originally created to be part of, but I never liked him, I don’t want to write up an interview with him, and I’d really rather he just stayed gone. (He was arrogantly ignorant and stupidly impulsive. I think I based him on a real person I knew at university.)

And otherwise, I’ve never had any characters with Q names.

Sorry about that.


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. The only Q name I actually like is Quincy, and that’s probably because of the Dracula novel. Don’t worry, Q is a annoying letter. Look forward to reading more interviews soon 🙂
