I am a aspiring Jewish writer who has a habit of starting stories yet never finishing them due to being a perfectionist. Depending on my mood, I am either interested in the darker aspects of Tolkien’s Legendarium, such as Feanor, or some of the more meta aspects such as the fictional history of his writings. Due to the influence of Tolkien, I tend to use more archaic language Upon writing my own stories. I will not say what I write about, other than that I write in many genres and lean more towards experimental and metafiction, though all my own writings are set in the same universe as each other, yet unconnected. Recently, I have been coming up with my own partial languages for my own characters inspired by Tolkien’s detail oriented writing process. It is such an enjoyable, yet frustrating, process.
Favorite quotes in Tolkien’s writings:
- "Now Tevildo seeing Beren narrowed his eyes until they seemed to shut, and said: “I smell dog”, and he took dislike to Beren from that moment."
- ― Vëannë to Eriol in The Book of Lost Tales Part Two, "The Tale of Tinúviel” 
This comes right after a description of Tevildo is given and it gives off the impression that he is a force to be reckoned with, yet the very first thing he says is: “I smell dog”.
