I continue to find it amazing to read more about Tolkien‘s writing process. Sometimes he struggled through draft after draft and wrote questions to himself when things didn‘t seem to make sense. Then at other times the basic ideas emerge early, not much is drafted, and a complete draft appears almost all at once.

I managed to get through this chapter last night even though I have been exhausted the last few nights. I doubt I‘ll stay caught up through the week. I always love when reproductions from Tolkien‘s manuscripts are included. Although I can‘t read the writing, the combination of writing and drawing is wonderful to me.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I agree, they are so beautiful. 3d
JulietBooks Love it💛 3d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I don‘t think @JazzFeathers is caught up yet either...do you think I should push the schedule out a bit? 3d

JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Ehy, gals, no, l'm not caught up, but l'll do my best over the weekend. How's everyone else doing? I don't want to cause delays, and really l can't wait to start the new book (finished The War of the Ring last night). I'm good with whatever 😉 3d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers At least we‘ll all be in the same book again. 3d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers @Daisey Please let me know if the two of you get bogged down to much and we need to shift dates a bit more, ok? 3d
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I may not stay caught up during the week, but I think I should be back to weekends that allow me time to catch up. 3d
JazzFeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey I'd prefer to try and catch up too. I should be back to a far more normal working schedule soon. 2d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers @Daisey Sounds good, but again just let me know if anything changes or you fall too far behind. We need to keep the fellowship together, can‘t leave anyone behind!😉 2d

The first chapter starts with some intense notes and drafts showing Tolkien considering exactly how the ring would be destroyed. It‘s interesting to see how each of these small variations impacts the tone of the event.

Also enjoying pumpkin praline ice cream as I read!

I can't believe l'm still behind with this. But today l'll try to catch up. Work is seriously killing me.

Loved to read this. The Passing of the Grey Company is one of the most chilling chapters in the book. Tolkien could write some serious horror, if he wanted!

I'm so fascinated with the idea that Aragorn could be a new 'Lord of the Ring'.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa You‘re getting so close! 6d

I liked this chapter because l think it showed, even more than the final book does, how central the theme of healing is for Tolkien. It almost seem that to him, a hero who can only kill and is unable to heal is not really a hero.

I am so behind with this. Crazy rhythms at work, then a horrible cold, and l fell so much behind.
But l'll catch up! 😁💪

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I was just going to ask how you were doing with this.... maybe we should push back delay the new one a bit more. 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ^ Sorry, I should have tagged everyone @Daisey @BookwormAHN @wordslinger42 I haven‘t seen a lot of posts about the new book yet and we have one member still working on the last one....would you like me to shift the schedule back a week or two for Sauron Defeated? 1w
Daisey @jazzfeathers @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I started by reading the Foreword this past weekend, but then I "accidentally" read an entire Brandon Sanderson novel and have not gotten any further. ? I'm good with whatever the group decides. 1w

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey 😂 I love when I get sucked into a good book. So if we pushed it back a week or so, you‘d only be ahead by the Forward.👍. What Sanderson did you reread, by the way? I‘m always looking for more distractions... ummm books.😉 1w
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I've read the Foreword and the first chapter. I'm fine with pushing it back a week, though, because the launch team for my first book just started and I'm a bit overwhelmed trying to focus on that this week! 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @wordslinger42 I didn‘t know you were in the middle of launching a book! Congratulations! 1w
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thank you!! I posted about the launch team on Litsy, but didn't get much of a response 😂 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa 😂I‘m behind on even reading posts on Litsy! 🤦‍♀️ 1w
JazzFeathers @Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @eanderson @wordslinger42 @tdrosebud @BookwormAHN Gals, l can't deny l'd be happy to have one more week. But don't do it just for me! I'm aiming at finishing by tomorrow night and hope to catch up - At least partly - in the weekend. I'll do my best 😁💪

JazzFeathers Oh my goodness, @wordslinger42 ! If l knew about your launch, l've totally removed it. Stupid that l am. But it's quite a common occurance this time of the year 🙄 Hey, give me a shout via mail. Send me your links. I'll do my best to share 😁 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers well, I‘m going to revamp the schedule. It will give you more time, but at this point none of us is up to date on the new book either. So instead of all of us playing catch-up, I‘ll just move it back and we can enjoy it together....with less rush.😉 1w
wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Hahaha no worries!! I feel like I'm behind on most things right now! 😂 Changing the schedule sounds good to me!! 1w
wordslinger42 @JazzFeathers Don't worry about it! And thank you so much 😊 The launch team gets to read Part One and then share their thoughts, links to preorder, etc. If you like, I can email you part one! Or I can just send you the link to the website when it's ready next week!! Whichever is easier for you :) Thank you for being willing to help!!! 1w
BookwormAHN I haven't started yet, so I'm good with pushing it back. 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BookwormAHN Apparently we are all behind AND I forgot to even tag @eanderson so we REALLY needed at least 1 more week. 🤪 Hopefully a few more days will sync us all back up.🤞 (edited) 1w
Daisey Sounds good to me! Also, @wordslinger42, I did see your post but figured I would be overwhelmed at this point in the year. If you want to send info my way as well, I will try to fit it in! 1w
wordslinger42 @Daisey Thank you so much for being willing to help! I definitely understand this time of year being busy, so no worries at all! I can send you the link to the website nezt week 😊 Where should I send it to? 1w
wordslinger42 @Daisey You're good to delete it! Thanks!! 1w
Daisey @wordslinger42 I‘ll look forward to it. Congratulations!! 🎉 1w
Daisey @Riveted_Reader_Melissa The Sanderson is the first of a fairly new YA science fiction series, I think the only book of it published so far, called 1w
Daisey @JazzFeathers I got wrapped up in the other discussion, but I also really appreciated what you pointed out here about a hero needing to be able to heal as well as fight. Great insight! 1w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey Ok, I know my nephew loved his YA series that started with 1w
JazzFeathers @wordslinger42 l don't think l'll be able to read part one, even if l'd love to. But do send the link when it's ready 😉 1w
JazzFeathers @Daisey Yeah, the schedule has kind of taken over 😂 l find Tolkien's concept of hero fascinating and even unique. I'd love to discuss it. But l'm sure there will be the opportunity on Sauron Defeated too 😊 1w

On a side note, apple cake makes for a great breakfast. 🍎 🍏

Denethor's character's arc is one of the most intense in the book, IMO.
Denethor is one of those awesome, but very difficult characters that Tolkien was brave enough to write, but that readers often seem to dismiss as just assholes.
Maybe l have a problem, but l really like these characters, like Turin, Morwen, Thorin, and of course my boy Feanor 😉
