NANOWRIMO (Part 2)

NANOWRIMO

It’s a race but it’s not about finishing first.
It’s about finishing under a month.
It’s about making a story.
A story that will live in your heart.
Because you see, you have this choice…

You can cheat
You can work hard
Or you can quit.

Or you can bring a story to life.

What will you do?

Guess what? FIRE IN THE WOODS is still $.99 but you have to act fast. Prices return to normal some time tomorrow.

NANOWRIMO

It’s not for the feint hearted.
I’ve won three out of four years.
It was hard.
It was easy.
It was terrifying.

At it’s best, it’s a joyride. It’s flying across uncharted territory on dragon wings.. and at it’s worst, it’s an Ogre. A creature who rises out of the very walls, throwing boulders at my carefully created outline, tearing down the walls I created word by word.

And yet I finished.

But it wasn’t easy. Every year there is this point where nothing gels. Where I can’t figure out where my plot dropped off to and .. worse. I hate all my characters.  Those are the days when I have to re-read my story. When I have to create stuff out of nowhere.Sometimes it takes re-reading what I wrote. Sometimes, just talking it out.. but it always happens.

My story appears.Magic happens.

My story takes off on it’s own. I’ll truly have no clue what my characters were going to do or even why they did what they did.

So, if your thinking this task is impossible, or to terrifying a commitment to consider.. you might be right.

But, what if…

What if in the dreariest part of winter, you decided to clear off a month to do something you love.

One single month.

A month where you spend time doing something for yourself. One month writing the story you’ve kept at the back of your mind. One month thinking outside of the box. One month thinking of yourself.

Consider NANOWRIMO.

One month,

One person committed to something bigger than themselves.

One novel that craves to be set free.

One word at time.

What do you have to lose?

Interview with Terri Rochenski

503a8-sots2btour2bbutton2b3

I read a sample chapter of Terri’s first book several years ago and it stayed with me. The characterization.. the flow of words, seldom do books remain in our heads for years and yet.. Terri’s did. I was very excited to find out that Secret of Souls is now out.. I was even more excited when Terri agreed to be interviewed!

~ ~

Terri, they say every book has a story and that every story has a meaning. Can you tell me was there special meanings (to you) behind Secret of Souls?

The Pool of Souls series came into existence due to a rough patch I experienced in my 20s. I was involved in a cult-like church, and had NO CLUE I was being manipulated and used by those ‘above’ me. Hyla’s story began as a whisper when I escaped, and developed over the next half-dozen years.

Does any particular character in this book draw you more than others? If so.. why?
Jadon. While he isn’t the love interest of our heroine, his character always clattered for attention whenever I would sit down to write. Although arrogant and confident, Jadon, an Elite Soldier of King Eadread Eotherian, is a likeable young man, one with an endearing flaw.

Those who aren’t familiar with your work, can you tell me what your preferred medium is? Do you find you write primarily in paranormal, contemporary or are you a solid history buff?

I have two loves – total opposites – which makes it a smidge tougher to market myself. Fantasy, like LotR, and historical romance, like Pride & Prejudice. My mind has been toying with the idea of merging them. Perhaps THAT is the answer to my muse’s happiness.

Now to some practical questions. Old fashioned or new fangled. You know what I mean. When you write are you a pen and paper kind of gal, or as Laptop only person?
I’m definitely an old fashioned kind of gal. I like to write scenes down on paper, that way when I enter them into the computer, they get a 1st round of edits. Also, using a pen keeps me from hitting ‘backspace’ every other word.

Last question and I have to ask it, you know I do. Which do you prefer? Dragons or Bunnies?

LOL! If it’s Falkor of The NeverEnding Story, then by all means … dragons. Bunnies? As long as they STAY OUT OF MY GARDEN!!!!! they’re alright.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by Terri. I enjoyed your interview! If you want to know more about Terri and Secret of Souls.. keep reading!

Title: Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2)
Author: Terri Rochenski
Publisher: J. Taylor Publishing
Release Date: October 6, 2014
Keywords: Adult Fantasy

Blurb:
Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.

Bio:
Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling. Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
