E is for ‘Ents’.
I was quite proud of this thought as it relates quite strongly to my novel project. Lord of The Rings has influenced me a lot in my ideas in any of the books I’ve attempted to write. I love the Ents in Lord of the Rings because of their slow nature – in their infuriatingly, slow demeanour, they still manage to make us laugh. This intrigued me because I thought it was very clever humour and I’ve never really been good and written humour - my humour is far more spontaneous.. .Well, my closest friends call it humour...others just look at me like I’m slightly odd.
Well, anyway, back to ents! I thought, although they are infuriating, they must be nice in their way because Merry and Pippin manage to make friends with them.
This made me think...how nice would it be to have a tree friend? I would be able to see outside in the park under a tree alone, without looking unsociable or as if you have no friends because there you would be...talking with your tree friend!
I think it sounds marvellous.
So I leave you with this question in mind: would you like to have a tree friend? (Provided it wasn’t mean like a triffid. :S That wouldn’t be a very good friend...
(In case you don’t know what a triffid is, I advise you to take a look at the film The Day of The Trifids, one of the first every horror movies, so I’m told, just so that you’re ready in case your tree friend turns out to be a scheming triffid.)
