I was at a loss for a New Year’s resolution this year until I read this sentence in Diana Raab’s blog, “Diana’s Notebook” : “I believe when you honor a favorite writer, it is a good idea to read most of their works.”
Inspiration arrived! – my goal for 2014 is to read/reread these books by J.R.R. Tolkien – The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Silmarillon, The Tale of the Children of Hurin; his poem, The Fall of Arthur, and lecture, Beowulf: The Monsters and The Critics.” I share Tolkien’s love and fascination with dragons. And myths.
Diana Raab is a memoirist, poet and writing instructor whose passion is keeping a notebook. One of her books is Writers and Their Notebooks. The fountain pen on the cover immediately caught my eye, but I can’t figure out what it is. Any ideas?
Any New Year’s resolutions to share?
