Writing on the go

Hidden words by moonlight revealed.

In The Hobbit, it has always intriqued me the elves deciphering the dwarves’ map. Mr. Tolken was a master storyteller and writer, but I wonder what he would have thought of modern writers and our new fangled tech. He would have used a pen and notebook for the those writing times on the go. But would he have embraced our new ways of writing?

I use both old school ink pen and legal pad and I also use my cellphone, my tablet and my laptop if its handy. I wonder if having my writing spread over so many mediums weaks or strengthens my message. Tonight I am fuzzy brained due to weather shifting. So forgive me if my post is more scattered than normal.

When on the go and the writing urge hits, how do you capture it? Or do hold on to mentally trying to get home before the thought/urge is lost? Cheers, james

The Hobbit: The Desolution of Smaug

Oh my this was as good as the first movie! Ok i mentioned in my second post I think Mr. Tolken is the gold standard for fantasy writing. I just watched Peter Jackson’s second installment of The Hobbit. I enjoyed it thoroughly even if we had to pause for s’mores. Oh those were so good too, maybe better than popcorn. Anyway one thing that caught my attention was the way the movie filled in some gaps from the book. 

Since Hobbit is written from Bilbo’s prespective it makes sense that when Gandalf leaves Bilbo wouldn’t know what happened until later. I am trying not to give anything away in case you haven’t seen it yet. I so enourge you to watch both movies if you like Lord of the Rings or fantasy adventure. I give it two thumbs up and s’mores. Ok thats my two cents worth. Cheers,
