September 22: Happy Birthday, Frodo Baggins!
I should like to save the Shire, if I could - though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. But I don’t feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.
And Bilbo too! [x]
I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.
"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.
As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this!
I like this a lot. My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change.
Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good. My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.” The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took. I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.
so stan totally had a secret twin brother right. im not the first one to say this but,
rounder, thinner rimmed glasses.
when he found them in the hidden room he tucked them away before anyone could see
then was just looking at them later
and who is that kid reading in the back,…
Elrond in his armor. I finally got this done.
Felt like drawing this which is about famous dragons that lived on Middle Earth. If people thought Smaug was huge, well he is basically an ant compared to Ancalagon. Granted, I am not so sure if I got the other dragon’s sizes and look correct, but I wanted to basically do my take on them.
