|Chris Hemsworth's impersonation of the Hulk|
Frodo Baggins, a small hobbit who lives a simple life and doesn't go on any adventures. Until his uncle's 111th birthday party and he inherits a small ring which will change the course of his life and the course of the future. Frodo is stabbed and almost dies on his journey to Rivendell, but he decides to take the ring. He wants to destroy it.
I love the dedication in Frodo's character. He has this awful, craptastic journey ahead of him and with his best friend Sam; Frodo does it.
Honestly, I wish I could forget Frodo's story...
I wish I could forget so I could experience it over and over again like it was new. :)
Frodo: It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance.
Gandalf: Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo's hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.
I wish I could have the dedication to finish what I start. I have four unpublished/unedited books which might be somewhat salvageable if I committed to finishing it. If Frodo can take the Ring to Mordor, I can someday finish editing them. :)
Do you ever wish you could have the dedication of Frodo to finish what you started?

A so-so day of writing. Hey, it was a Friday night - I went out with my best friend. We enjoyed some delicious BBQ boneless chicken wings, strawberry long island ice teas, and each others company. (Also we found a few last clearance chocolate eggs from Easter.) It was definitely necessary. :) I only wrote 345 words. Yikes! Hopefully I can get more done this weekend! I hope to hit 15k by Sunday night!
As a side note, how do you all keep up with commenting? I'm swimming in word counts and blog posts to read! If I don't get to you, I'm sorry! I will do my best to visit your blog and posts. Doing Camp NaNo and the A-Z Challenge at the same time is harder than I imagined. I will do my best to get to you!
Also, Laura Josephsen's incredible book - Rising Book 1: Resistance is on sale for $0.99 for a limited time! If you enjoy beautiful writing, fantasy, and a captivating story - you definitely should buy it! The second one (and conclusion) just came out! I have to find some time to read it! Seriously, one of the best books I've read in a long time. :) I highly recommend it! You'll want to share it with everyone you meet!
Okay - that's all for now. Have a great weekend! :)
