Exercise #15 is posted at "There and Back Again" & B2MEM
- Hi all,
Exercise #15 is posted at the writers' workshop "There and Back Again".
"A Fish Out of Water"
Sometimes our characters can become stuck in a rut, doing the same
things in every scene with the same results. So...
Write a scene for your character--drabble, vignette, short story--that
forces him/her to deal with an unfamiliar situation.
If you are interested in participating, please visit the workshop and
have a look at the details of this exercise:
We would also like to invite you to join "Ring-a-Ring-a-Challenge",
our take on "B2MEM", the "Back to Middle-earth Month", which is taking
place this March.
The Henneth Annun Yahoo Group, the Henneth Annun Story Archive, the
writers' workshop "There and Back Again" and Tolkien Fan Fiction are
working together to challenge all writers of Tolkien fan fiction for
And here's the Challenge:
In the "Tale of the Years" Tolkien tells us about what happens to
certain characters each day of March 3019. We challenge you to write
about the character(s) he does NOT mention.
Today's entry in the "Tale of the Years" is:
"March 1. Frodo begins the passage of the Dead Marshes at dawn.
Entmoot continues. Aragorn meets Gandalf the White. They set out for
Edoras. Faramir leaves Minas Tirith on an errand to Ithilien."
So what happens to the characters NOT mentioned in this entry by name?
Or characters, such as wives, children or bad guys, that must have
existed, but were never mentioned at all?
Here's your chance: tell us about the characters that
Tolkien did not mention for this day in Middle-earth, March 3019!
Every day the entry of the "Tale of the Years" will be posted as a new
writing cue at "There and Back Again" and the other participating
groups and sites. Visit "There and Back Again", have a look at the
daily writing cue and come back to Middle-earth!
