    Bravo Frodoroacks, bravo. Good job.

    Up until this last year I didn't write very good stories, but since sometime early last year I have been struck with a lot of ideas for stories and my writing has gotten better.
    I've written most of my stuff for my freshman english class this last year. I've written a conclusion to an unfinished story for english. Maybe one of you had to do this to, it was called THE LADY OR THE TIGER? I'll sum it up for those of you who have not had to read this, the basic plot is that a princess and a peasant fall in love, which not only is against the law, but against her father's (the king's) wishes. So in a coloseum (sp??) they judge him like all the criminals. There are two doors in the arena portion, and the felon must open one door and there will either be a lady who will be immediately wed to him or a tiger to devour him. It ends as the guy opens the door. And that's where we picked up writing the story.
    As I wrote the rough draft of my conclusion that we needed, I was watching a movie. The movie's title was GLADIATOR. Needless to say it turned into a gore fest. But not a the tiger lept at the man adn killed him gore fest. A play by hideous and disgusting play. Though I knew my mistake as I wrote it not that it mattered, tiger would go for you neck not you gut. Then as we had one of our peers go through and correct the grammatical errors, mine was the longest one. And while he was trying to finish reading it other people looked at it and caught just a few sentences of it. Every one was shocked. But you should have heard the dead silence when they got the teacher to read it out loud.

    We also had to write an one act play, a myth ( I did an end of the world myth for the Greeks, which was probably one of my best), and various other short stories. Most of my stories aren't as violent as the first one.

    I have been working on a story of my own that has been changing since I started. It starts off at a high school were our main characters are first introduced. Then out of nowhere something hits the earth and very few people survive, less than a hundred through out the entire globe. Then we have the coping, learning, and mistakes of the small group we follow. Then one is out cast and then we find a stockpile of technology and the ones who destroyed the majority of the earth. But chances are the ending will change by the time I get done with the first part though.

    I'm putting together a series of stories that are interconnected years after the war of the ring
    The characters are:
    Baldur a Knight of Gondor
    Jarek a Knight in the Rohirrim
    Kili II a dwarf who helped Gimli rebuild and protect the glittering caves of Aglarond
    Koraga one of the last orcs
    Arvel & Elrohim an elven couple who remained in middle Earth
    Theoden Brandybuck & Faramir Took (Faramir is an actual character from the LOTR trilogy family tree as Pippin's son) two hobbits who are the main characters.

    Interesting characters. What is the story outline and setting?

    I have written severalstories over the years, and have co-written a few with my wife, and have adapted some RPs that I have been a part of into stories. Some were on Henneth Annun, but now reside on Archive Of Our Own. Also have a couple on Open Scrolls and Many Paths To Tread.

    I'm still working on that. I've decided to change Baldur to Boromir II who is Faramir's son.

    I'm also going to do a story based on either Elboron (Faramir's son) or Barahir (Faramir's grandson).

    I used to write a lot; but being busy has prevented me from doing so. I consider myself a decent writer; not the worst, but not the best either. I also like to create my own worlds. Many that I have no idea what to do with! Like a modern fantasy setting that I have no characters for. (At the world building stage.) , but I am also working on a LOTRs abridged story. Full of Tolkeiner in jokes, Cracks at Shagrat's name, and other amusing acts. (Be warned, I have a Very dark sense of humor!)

    About a year ago I wrote some short stories, I don't quite remember what it exactly was about.
    All I can remember is that it was about elves and a great war. I should look through my notes to find back the story,
    I'm getting curious about what I wrote

    I write stories and poetry. Some are fantasy bc I have a very rich internal life and love living inside my head. It's a happier and safer place to be than the real world sometimes. I also paint and draw.

    Maybe one day I'll feel comfortable enough to share here but right now I'm still a bit too shy.

    I have just started writing my first book. It is an adventure novel very similar to Lord of the Rings and is based in a world similar to a medieval world. It is so early on that I haven't even come up with a name yet. The book is about a boy who has to travel across the world in order to retrieve an object of mystic value, any suggestions for a title??
    Thanks
    Felix:)

    I wish everyone who creates stories, poems, art, etc in our beloved Tolkien's style much happiness and success in their endeavors.

    Whether you're brave and publish and share your gifts with others or like me keep them close to your heart I wish you many more lovely fantastical adventures in the days ahead.

    That’s awesome, I’m doing something similar, only mine has a bit of the dark crystal thrown in as well. It’s about a girl who is trying to avenge her father who was killed by the villain. All the while unwittingly saving the world, and learning to control her hot temper. As this is going on she sees a strange world with many bizarre creatures.
