    Favorite part of the Hobbit

    It's hard for me to say, because the entire book seems to 'flow' so naturally. Of course it's divided in chapters, but to me it's all tied together in a way I can't say that this or that part is better. I can't say the same about the Lord of the Rings.

    Sequel to LotR

    It would have been terribly difficult to actually write a good sequel for LOTR, given that most of the elves had already abandoned Middle Earth, and so the story would be limited to humans, dwarves and hobbits. If anything, I'd love too see a story, not exactly a sequel, but one story that...

    Who here writes his/her own stories?

    IMO, you should write as long as your stories interest you, as long as you feel that you have to finish things. The funny thing is that you sound just as my sister. :D LOL, is it too much if I ask you to show us any of your stories?

    Gandalf as a kid?

    Yes, perhaps he was too worried with Sauron to actually think of jokes and humor all the time...

    Gandalf as a kid?
