Toast the Professor and ROW80 Starts Again

Tuesday is the 120th anniversary of J. R. R. Tolkien's birth.

Join us in a toast, hosted by the Tolkien Society!

"To celebrate this event, on this day each year Tolkien fans around the world [are] invited to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.

The toast is "The Professor".

For those unfamiliar with British toast-drinking ceremonies:

To make the Birthday Toast, you stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words 'The Professor' before taking a sip (or swig, if that's more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink."

If I can obtain some, I'll be sipping Lagavulin or The Glenlivet.

Don't forget, the second year of A Round of Words in 80 Days starts today with round 1 of 2012! Set your goals now! And don't worry, you can always change them as you go along.

Mine are as follows:

send out queries for Out of the Water

print out Ayten's story and do a read through, writing any missing scenes (such as the, er, ending)

edit my plot bunny story

Happy new year to everyone!

And don't forget, the Whisky Trench Riders' second album, Underneath the Tavern Sign, is coming out soon! Listen to the first three tracks for free on ReverbNation.
