The green great Dragon

​When J. R. R. Tolkien was 7 years old, J. R. R. Tolkien wrote his first work of fiction, which a “green great Dragon”. Sadly, when his mother corrected him, and told him it was great green dragon, Tolkien was so discouraged that he put away his fledgling work, and didn’t try another attempt to write for many more years.

Wow. This shocked me. J. R. R. Tolkien is known as the author of The Lord of the rings, and the Hobbit, and the Silmarillion, and many more works that I, and many more fans, enjoy reading over and over again. And when this “incident” happened, it could have ended Tolkien’s career as an author.

I’m so happy he began writing again.
