Ziggy the Space Tomato: Part 02

Page 2 in the adventures... talk about a slow building story.

Have been reading some of 'The History of Middle Earth' books, which show how Tolkien wrote the LOTR books, and ideas that he considered but didnt get left in, which I find really interesting. It took him something like 12 years to write in his spare time, which is really something. It's inspiring how he had some initial idea of where the story was going, but then let things develop and characters introduce themselves, seemingly without drawing up a detailed character sheet of their backstory, likes, motivations....

Saw Wall-e last night, which was marvellous. I envy the Pixar people...
