Product Description

All three parts of the epic masterpiece combined in one definitive edition of the text.

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Since it was first published in 1954, The Lord of the Rings has been a book people have treasured. Steeped in unrivalled magic and otherworldliness, its sweeping fantasy has touched the hearts of young and old alike.

1/5: 5,011 words.

Those last few hundred words took a push to get onto the page, and may not survive a final edit, but being that close to 5,000 was a huge motivation. 

I'm still figuring out what a sustainable upper limit is for how many words a day I can get done; so far I'm just aiming to do better than I did the day before...

Not writing scenes today or tomorrow. Taking off to plan the next 25% of the book, the lion's share of which I hope to write in the next week.

May get into the novel today. Need to do some shoveling first, methinks.

But I was productive this morning: http://seansweeneyauthor.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-paperbacks-well-some-of-them-are.html

So I have that going for me. Which is nice.

Jan 8: 1670 words today.

Only just made the target I wanted.  Had to leave early and only got home late.  It was a long day.  Was around 600 words short of what I wanted but somehow found them in a 15 minute burst just before bed.

There's the odd day so far that I haven't done 1000 words (though I have written every day!) I'm currently on 17,188 words for January though!
