TragicKingdom

Tolkien ~ "I wrote the Hobbit as a relief from examining school certificates as it was then called. One of the candidates mercifully left one of his pages with no writing on it - which is possibly the best thing that can happen to an examiner - and I wrote on it 'In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit.' Names always generate a story in my mind, and eventually I thought I should find out what hobbits are like. But that was the Beginning. To think that this was the beginning of Hobbits, and to see where that blank page has taken us his readers and followers sort of boggles the mind. I always think about how the smallest bit of inspiration can come at any time, and most of us watch it flow away and disappear into our subconcious. I am grateful that Mr. Tolkien followed his bunny trail and took us along for the ride of our lives in finding out what hobbits are like. Maybe a blank page every now and then is a good thing to look at.
