If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?
If I could have written any book I think I would have wanted to be the author of The Lord of the Rings. I love the language, world, and species that Tolkien created! I have daydreamed about creating a world with new creatures and languages but when It comes to actually trying to write it down it simply does not make sense or I don’t know how to translate it down to paper.
Tolkien was an amazing person. He created an entire language! The had to have taken years and so much patience to be able to get the linguistics of it all down. I can’t imagine being able to do something even close to that. Not only did he create a language that people learn and speak but he created a world so fantastical yet so realistic. When you read his books you can see the creatures, the landscape, feel the hope and despare.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to have been able to create something that all these years later people are still loving?
