We all know that this is the time of the year to be thankful. I am thankful for my imagination, I’ll tell you that. I’m thankful for my characters who help give me insight to the world in ways I had never thought about until I had created them.
And I am thankful for J.R.R. Tolkien.
Why Tolkien, you ask?
Well, I have always loved to write, but The Lord of the Rings movies came out when I was in junior high, giving me beautiful insight to the visual world of fantasy, and so much inspiration to create my own world, ensemble cast, and a way to channel my insight of morality.
So here’s where you come in.
Which books or movies gave you the inspiration for your SNI or WIP? Which authors are you thankful for this holiday season for their inspiring world, characters, or outlook on humanity? Why?
