Thread: Little help from the community please?
To start with, I only want Fotr chapters until December, then you can add TTT chapters, as I want good film crossover jokes in there.
Eventually, I hope to have a grand creation the like of which has never been seen on the net before, and will make Taz proud to have met us. The first ever complete re-writing of the Lord of the Rings, done by the Tolkienfan.net community. Put us right on the map I should say. Who wants to do the appendices?
Right, now who else is feeling funny?
Who wants to do the appendices?
Can I do the "Tale of Aragorn and Arwen"?
I'm stuck in the Old Forest, but I think I'll come up with something again soon. It's not easy to keep finding jokes about that one. There are already things in it that I think are way too lame... Oh well. I'm sure that once you've edited it, it'll be loads more funny.
Still working on the Forest, but I don't have my copy here, and when you've read my holiday story, you'll know why I haven't had time to do any more. I know what to write, but I have to have the original with me to do it properly. I'll have my LOTR book back next week and then I'll have the time to work on it too.
I kinda liked the other one too, but h*ll! You know what, I'll write them both out, so you can pick one.
Too bad I can't write, and have no sense of humour!
Ok. Finished the Old Forest. Again... It's on the way to you, Plastic!
By the way: it says "with a little help from Plastic Squirrel), but what you should read is: "with a lot of help by Plastic Squirrel". It sounded ok at first to me, but now it's just perfect I think. Thanks man!
I used to be shy about showing my work to people too, but I found that once I did, I learned twice as much again about writing. Constructive criticism is extremely useful, as long as you don't take it to heart.
As another member once told me:
You can always ignore what you dont like - works for me
I might try a bit of creative writing myself, but i don't know if I'll show it to anyone for fear of embarrasment.
Thanks ever so much Arwen. I'm glad I could bring a smile to your face.
And show us your writing, I'm the first to admit I'm rubbish, but I still keep on putting it out there.
I think I'll have a go at another chapter too soon... When I find the time, that is.
