Great opening paragraph 17… ‘The Hobbit’ #amwriting #FirstPara

The Hobbit“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit hole, and that means comfort.”
‘The Hobbit’ by JRR Tolkien
