I'm working on something now, for the last 2 years actually, but it has completely changed in plot since I started and it doesn't even have a name yet. Because of all the changes, I'm only about 3 chapters into it, and it really bothered me until I learned how long Tolkien worked on LOTR. My story is pretty different from Tolkien's because I had only read The Hobbit when I began writing. I sometimes worry that it sounds too much like a teenage girl speaking when I write from the guys' point of view (don't let the name fool you, it's just a joke with friends. We are Pippin, Merry, Sam and Frodo) I have started to create languages, cultures and an entire world. I have maps to scale, a small dictionary for the languages, some songs and am a history for it. (I need a social life...)
