Three Se Trois Tatlo Très San Drei Hiru Sone Tria

If you do not know much about me, Eleanor Willow, author of Legends of Lorata (and, as of late, several other stories), this is a rare chance to get to know me better.  I love languages.  One my even say that I am obsessed.  My college advisor told me I had to cut back on the foreign languages and focus on my major, or else he would hunt me down.  Sage advise, yes, but not much fun for a budding (would-be) linguist.  I suppose that is why I am taking advantage of my fantasy world as an opportunity to make new languages.  So yes, I enjoy looking up words (or, as with the title above, numbers) in other languages.

This set of threes seems to be going around, so I decided to take the time to participate as well.  It is not just three questions, but several questions to which there should be three answers.  I saw it on one of my reader’s pages, who got it from another page.  Happy reading!

THREE THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF:
1. I am a fantasy & sci-fi writer.
2. I have a master’s degree.
3. I have been developing Lorata, in all of its changing forms, ever since I was twelve years old.

THREE THINGS THAT SCARE YOU:
1. War

THREE OF YOUR EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:
1. Caffeine

2. Richard Grant
3. J. R. R. Tokien (well, most other authors, really)

THREE QUOTES:
1. The importance of fantasy: “The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.” –Albert Einstein
2. …And of reading: “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one.” – George R. R. Martin
3. And bit of playfulness: “Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

What are your answers, fellow bloggers?

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a planet where four gods are known: good, evil, elemental and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the land whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently for books planned. The first one is completed and currently being edited. Any news I have on about publishing will be shared as it comes in!
