Novel Dreamers – October 2018

Novel Dreamers is a monthly writing challenge created by Dagna Theatre. Each month several talented writers (and Shaun) are set a task to write about a specific idea with a 1500 word limit. At the end of the month there’s a poll and a winner (not Shaun) is chosen.

The second season opened with the theme of character continuation, where we had to take a character (from anywhere we like) and continue their story. I’d been reading a lot of Tom Sawyer books so I went for a childhood adventure, set in the Shire and featuring a young Frodo Baggins. I also drew some cover art, which is not something I’m good at so please don’t judge the story by the cover!
