When Tolkien was trying to write Lord of the Rings, he didn’t have a blog. He didn’t even have an agent. He just had a very determined publisher. It took decades to finish and even longer for it to be printed. During this time, Tolkien did not go on publicity tours. He simply continued his […]Read More I’m just not that into me
