Tomorrow! Tomorrow! To say, I am looking forward to seeing The Hobbit tomorrow is to not to do it justice. Tolkien and his writing was a major influence on my writing (I discuss this in the post here). Yes, I don’t write fantasy typically, but this is more soul-related, life direction. Okay, this may all sound dramatic, but it is so very, very true for me. So I will be there, the first showing on Friday, turning off my iphone (with its Hobbit case) off for three hours… the only question is do I wear my Middle Earth t-shirt?
I’ve written three different articles about Tolkien this year. I think it is a record. Here are the articles:
- Adapting Tolkien
Adapting One’s Precious: Why most new novelists should personally avoid adapting (or thinking about) the inevitable screenplay
I hope you enjoy the movie!
