Mythcreants Invasion

November 2018

As the leaves end their color changing and frost whispers in the evening chill, a thought occurs to us: how would Lord of the Rings have turned out if Frodo had started his journey in the autumn instead of the spring? He’d have had to walk all the way to Mordor in the snow, much slower going assuming the whole Fellowship didn’t freeze to death. It also seems like Nazgul are unaffected by temperature, so they’d have had no trouble.

It all goes to show that starting a journey right can make all the difference. So whether you’re in the middle of NaNoWriMo or NaNoHellNo, we hope you’ve had a great start to November. Now you can make the journey even better with some choice Mythcreants posts.
