I finished Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien last week and I was kind of surprised how much I enjoyed it. I was told as a kid that Tolkien's novels are slow and full of too much description, so I never gave them a shot. Now I'm glad I haven't continued to let that deter me, because I'm really getting into the series. I'm into The Two Towers now and would probably enjoy it more if my Tolkien professor hadn't told us that we have a quiz over Fellowship and Book 1 of Towers on Monday. In addition to that, there's also a stack of books on neurolinguistics sitting on my desk for a research paper.
What I'm Writing
Not really much of anything the past couple of weeks. I'm still making steady progress on CK's revisions, but classwork is consuming my life.
What Inspires Me
This might sound kind of strange, but the sun. I live in a place where winter equals weeks of overcast skies and snow. We got a glimpse of that when it rained all weekend. But today the sun is out and it's actually warm outside and it's just so gorgeous.
What Else I've Been Up To
Classwork, mostly. It's midterms week around here and while I don't technically have any midterms, I do have a lot of exams and projects due. I'm seven episodes away from the last episode of Heroes and I haven't been able to watch any in a few days. That's going to be my reward this weekend for getting all of my work done.
