To Give in Return by Dawn Felagund

[ - ]

Summary:

Many times a day I realize how much my own life is built on the labors of my fellowmen, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.
Albert Einstein

This series will serve as a home for the stories that I have written for friends and peers between American Thanksgiving and the end of the year 2007.

Every year, I like to write something for the friends and people who have helped me as an author that year. I love writing these stories. As a writer, I look forward to December more than any other time of the year. It is otherwise impossible for me to put into words the joy and gratitude that these people bring into my life every day. The only way I have found is to wile away an afternoon with no thought but crafting a story where they will love each and every word ...

And this series is the fruits of that.

That said, I've asked for requests on LJ, and am always happy to take more. Check out this entry here for more information. Also, all of my stories--including non-Silmarillion pieces--can be read here.

Many, many thanks for another fantastic year.
