Welcome to The Inklings' Quill, a blog set aside for the study of one of the greatest authors of all time and father of the genre we now call "fantasy", J.R.R. Tolkien. This blog was originally created as a school project for a class on British literature, but I hope to expand this blog to something a bit greater. Thanks for dropping by! :D

A Welcome Note

Hello, and welcome to The Inklings' Quill, a blog originally started as a school project, but that I hope will expand to something a bit greater.  I thought I'd start with something simple and straight forward, so I'd like to tell you what to expect from this blog.

The Inklings' Quill was created to explore the story of one of the greatest authors of all time, J.R.R. Tolkien.  If you'll look to the right, you'll notice a section titled "pages" at the top.  There's a link there titled "J.R.R. Tolkien" which is a short profile I comprised for your benefit, along with a picture of the man himself.  In further posts we'll be discussing the Life of J.R.R. Tolkien, his works, and his writing style.  (Yes, I said his writing style.  It's a very interesting subject, and one might be surprised to find that he didn't have just one.)  I also want to touch on how Tolkien became the inspiration for much of the literature on today's bookshelves around the world.

As a final note, I will also be posting links to websites and articles I found helpful in my research, and hopefully I will be able to interview a few people whose works I feel tie in some way with Tolkien's work, life, or both (but we'll have to see about that.  Interviews are often tricky to obtain.)  And for those of you who like what you see here, I do have a writing blog I post on regularly titled "The Pen and Parchment" where I am currently discussing the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing.  Right now I am in the process of interviewing several authors and publishers who have agreed to shed some light on this very interesting and often touchy subject.  You can click on the link provided above, or go through the web address which is: http://www.theravenquill.blogspot.com.  For future reference, I will be posting a link to my blog on the side bar.

Thank you for dropping by! I hope to see you around in the near future as I explore the very interesting worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien.

About Me

My Photo
Nichole White is 25, a devout Christian, oldest of six children, and was homeschooled up to her first semester in college in the Spring of O9. But above everything else in her hectic life, Nichole is a writer. Her writing tends to lean towards Fantasy (with a little sci-fi thrown in) more than anything else. Nichole Also enjoys lurking in the sci-fi/fantasy forum at WritersDigest.com. Her current Blog "The Pen and Parchment" is a place she goes to discuss different subjects she finds interesting, first and foremost the art of writing, and then that of reading, and so on. It also might occasionally contain anything that is on her mind at the time. In the near future "The pen and Parchment" will obtain information about her current project, "Song of the Daystar" a christian fantasy novel, now in the final stages of the last rewrite.
