By age fourteen, he had expanded his repertoire to include poetry and lyrics. He wrote articles and poetry for his high school newspaper and wrote articles before becoming editor of his college newspaper.

Description: This was my entry for the "Tweet Me A Story Contest" held in January 2011. Can you tell a story in 140 characters? Writers were placed in 20 different groups. Each group received a word (which can be a noun, verb or adverb) that must be included in their story. And it must be no longer than 140 characters with spaces. Each writer could submit up to 3 stories. I submitted just the one.

“There must be more to life than what I've been given."
~ from the song "Off-world Colonies," by Memoria.”

“Good Morning!” said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out further than the brim of his shady hat.
“What do you mean?” he said. “Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit or There and Back Again
