I shall be posting my first in a series of essays on the book ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’. Aiming to have it up by 14:00, I will then be posting on a bi-weekly basis an essay that covers one or two chapters of the book. Please do remember it is a personal foray into a beloved book from my childhood, so there will be sentimentality covering every paragraph like beans cover toast.
On a side note, this blog has become my writing portfolio. This means that alongside my personal book posts I shall also be updating the writing I have done in a professional aspect.
I’ve been having too long a break, for various reasons, from writing pieces for this blog. The time has come for me to push the pen into action on this front once again!
Today I sat down and took notes on the opening chapter of a book close to my heart: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (I hope all have read it as it is a wonderful story). My plan with this book, and the Narnia series, is to go through each one and write essays covering a few chapters at a time (depending on how much ‘meat’ is in that particular section). These essays will be about the writing style, the children’s characters, spiritual/religious points that Lewis was making, and the joy the books give me. All this will be quite a personal and speculative affair, so if I seem a bit fuzzy with a point or miss chunks you were expecting to be covered then please forgive me, but do let me know.
I’d like to know how many people who read this are actually interested in what I may have to write about the books, so do feel free to comment with any feedback whatsoever.
I am aiming at finishing the first by the end of this month. Once I post the first the others should follow at regular intervals, but I will alert you to any changes!
Till then, so long,
