The Five W's for The Quest for Home by Jacqui Murray
The 5 W's in Story: The Quest for Home by Jacqui Murray
As laid out by JQ Rose, the 5 W's of a story are who, what, where, when and why. These important W's make up the bones of a story. Today I'll show you how they apply to my latest prehistoric fiction, The Quest for Home:
|The Quest for Home|
Book #2 in the Crossroads Trilogy
WHO--The main characters of The Quest for Home are Xhosa and Nightshade, two early humans who lived 850,000 years ago; and Wind, an advanced human who saves Xhosa’s life in Book 1 and becomes an integral part of her journey in Book 2. Xhosa and her People are a tribe of early humans who time has preserved mostly through bone fragments and stone tools. In this trilogy, I flesh out their desires and challenges to give readers a peek at life long ago when Nature was king and our goal was simply to survive.
WHEN— The story is set 850,000 years ago, a time in prehistory when man populated Eurasia. He was a violent species, fully capable of addressing the many hardships that threatened his survival except for one: future man, the one destined to obliterate any who came before.
WHAT—In this trilogy, Crossroads, we join Xhosa as she searches for a new home after being chased from her East African home by a more advanced form of man who would ultimately replace Xhosa’s species, Homo erectus. She is joined by other groups of Homo erectus, also driven from their homelands in South African, East Asia, Indonesia, and the Levant. They ultimately travel across Europe and settle on the Iberian Peninsula, hoping that will become their new home.
WHERE—In an effort to find a new home, Xhosa leads the combined Peoples across Eurasia to the Iberian Peninsula where they are stopped by the Atlantic Ocean. Here, they must make their stand.

Thanks so much for hosting me, JQ. I like this format. It really let me dig into the bones of the story!
You're welcome, Jacqui. And what great bones this story has. Figuring out the Five W's helps me to write a synopsis for my books. Glad you like the format. Thanks for being my guest!
I agree with Jacqui, this is a great format. I love the fascinating premise of your book, Jacqui. It must have been so interesting to research. Thanks for the insight into your story.
I had to think a bit, to make the summary concisely these factors. It was a good exercise.
Hi Helena, Fascinating is a good word to describe the story. Thanks for stopping by!
Fascinating subject for books, Jacqui. The research must'be been killer and then to make the folks seem real had to be hard. Good luck on this series. :)
It's actually fascinating. I'm researching stuff now for Book 3--it is so interesting!
