It asks some possible terms for discussion that is worth asking and is definitely something that might bring readers attention towards the subject matter referred to in this post.

This is a series that I’ve been meaning to read for quite a long time. And I do mean a long time. I remember a family member buying this book set for me at one of my first book fairs in grade school, and it’s been on my shelf ever since. It isn’t as if I […]

This is an author who writes fantasy series. They sound very cool indeed. It appears to be a retelling of other stories possibly. He writes things that have a dark style that is really interesting for those who would get into that.

This post is about how reading for enjoyment is a great start to get into writing what you like. Writing for enjoyment is always a start for going further.

I have not long started a pastime in creative writing. It is a future goal at some point in time to publish the work that I do with whatever method of approach I go towards doing it, this means the publisher I decide to go with, and the way I do it in whether a traditional way or self-publishing. Since the last few years or so I have been going to regular public classes that you can attend to practise different kinds of material that you have an interest in and learns ways you can direct yourself towards developing your craft. I am interested in several different kinds of literature that I read from time to time that brings influence to the material that I am doing. I read a number of reference books as well to gather knowledge on different subjects that interest me.

One type of fiction that I particularly get drawn to is fantasy fiction and adventure stories. One book I admire is Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein. They tell a story about an imagined world where fable and rights of passage by different kinds of people exist together.

“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. I have not much hope that Gollum can be cured before he dies, but there is a chance of it. And he is bound up with the fate of the Ring. My heart tells me that he has some part to play yet, for good or ill, before the end; and when that comes, the pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many – yours not least.” [From, The Fellowship of the Ring; The Shadow of the Past]
