Our interview with The Prince Within author Daisy Rodriguez


What exciting things have we learned from our interview with this weeks featured indie author Daisy Rodriguez?

LR: Please describe your typical writing day to our readers.       

DR: Waking up on a Saturday morning brewing a good cup of coffee while everyone is still asleep. Normally it would be at 6 am on a Saturday. In my robe go into my little writing space and sit down pull all the paperwork on the book and see where I left off and go over some notes that I did when I stopped. After that, I drown myself in my story until one of my kids walks in and startles me and then I begin the mom duties until about 12 pm when I go back into my little room and begin again. 

LR:  Describe your writing space.      

 DR: I love my writing space, it is not quite, because I have my kids constantly coming in and out but it is my personal little space. It is not just writing but for bills and everything else. I have a picture one of my fans drew of the two main characters in my book. I have a big computer desk, a small screen and an old Dell desktop. I have paper everywhere but I know where each one is about. I also have a small bed for when I stay up late at night on the weekend writing.  My desk is facing two windows where I could see my yard and the neighbor’s yard as well.  I have two build in bookshelves that has my collections of Stephen king, Clarissa Clare and Stephanie Meyers books. I have my idea of a sanctuary.  

LR: Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?        

  DR: The First book I wrote I did make it a two part, but each of my book will stand-alone. I like my main characters to have their own unique story. Like us humans, each of us has our own stories to tell.

LR:  If you could tell your younger writing self-anything, what would it be?    

 DR: I would tell my younger writing self to get out of that bashful state and be brave. People will always have an opinion on things rather it be good or bad you have to push through it and keep doing what you are doing. Writing is a gift and you should pursue it. 

LR:    How do you come up with the titles to your books?       

  DR: The way I came up with the title of my book was honestly pure luck. I am not good with titles. I am a good writer but titles kill me. I do not want to be a cliché or repeat a title that someone else has so I over think it and stay stuck.  

LR:  What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?        

DR: My most interesting quirk is that I place myself in my story. As I am writing and telling the story, I become the main character. I write exactly what I see I am doing. I could see in full detail my surroundings, the smell and taste of whatever the main character is having. I say I go as far as feeling every emotion possible. 

LR:    Are you on social media and can your readers interact with you?      

 DR: I sure am, I love being able to communicate with readers and fellow writers. They have great advice and great questions. 

LR:   When did you start writing?        

DR: I started writing when I was 10 to 11 years old. I loved making my family scared during our summer camping trips. While my cousins where outside playing I was inside writing and coming up with a good story to tell at night. 

LR:  Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?      

 DR: Start an outline first, and start your writing process with pencil and paper. This will be a first draft, often when I go back and transfer everything on the computer I normally add something or rewrite a sentence. You will be surprise on how much your story could stay on track without you writing every day.
