TV Tropes reblog: “So You Want to be the Next JRR Tolkien”

Well, technically you can’t reblog a Web page, but this is interesting:

Like J. R. R. Tolkien himself, you could teach yourself dead languages at the age of seven, go fight in the biggest and bloodiest war ever fought in your time and watch your friends die, begin writing of a better world on a battlefield where death is the only victor, return home to find your childhood ideals ruined in the name of progress, spend twenty years immersed in the dusty recesses of academe, then finally set pen to paper and make the words sing…

…or you could take the easy route, and just read this simple guide.
