Sketches Of Class: Nick Wale Interviews Terrence Roth

I managed to steal some time with author Terrence Roth. Terry is a serious writer of hard-line fiction. I have never met a writer so dedicated to the art of creation. Terrence tends to write with classical music in the background, a quiet office, and the result of his effort is always pure beauty. The latest Terrence Roth masterpiece is entitled “Sophie Knox.” I don’t need to tell you to go and buy it. I just ask you to stick around and read this interview. Writing is never about money, it’s about the art, and Terrence is an artist.

Q) How do you feel about writing? Is it art or a pastime for you?

A) I thoroughly enjoy the writing process, discovering an idea for a new book or short-story, racing to write down my thoughts, researching potential locations, and crafting characters. During the editing process, I spend considerable time challenging the entire premise of my story, reshaping key scene sequences if necessary, ensuring that each scene combines to elicit the response I had hoped for. For me writing is an art, a fiery passion that burns deep. I never get stressed when I reach a point in the story that challenges my descriptive ability – I just take a break from writing, perhaps a drive somewhere. Ultimately the issue resolves itself after I stop focusing on it for a while.

Q) How do ideas come to you? Do you have eureka moments where you just have to sit down and write a scene?

A) Story ideas pop into my head all of the time. There has never been a scenario where if I do something routinely the ideas flow; they’re always random and I never know exactly when inspiration takes hold. I do have several eureka moments a week. If I am working on a story, I stop and write the ideas down in an MS Word log that I have maintained for some time. If the idea comes to me while away from home, if I can write it down in a journal I keep with me, I do so. If I don’t have an opportunity to write the story idea down immediately, I craft mental scenes of the story and create a single word trigger that I recall once I’m back at home.

Q) What kinds of books do you enjoy reading?
