“Little did I know where the chief peril lay! Truly Elrond spoke, saying that we could not foresee what we might meet upon our road. Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would not have come, had I known the danger of light and joy.”
― Gimli, J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Good morning, DUPeeps! It is Day 5 of Registration and the underground city of Moaria echoes with the philosophizations of a peculiar Dwarf standing on his soapbox . . .
so he can get a better look at his kin volunteering for NaPoWriMo2021!
We have to specify kin as opposed to kinsmen, for reasons of politicial correctness. And with the beards, you can't tell who the kinswomen are anyway . . .
wallyroo92 ( aka Gimlyroo of the Irony Hills DwarfClan ) is back for a 2nd term on the Team NaPo council! https://deepundergroundpoetry.com/poets/wallyroo92/
When he's not distracted with dreams of smoking pipe tobacco and feasting on salted pork, Gimlyroo has the eyes of a hawk and the ears of a fox! NOTHING will get past him as he tends to his duties as Unique Word Counter. No Tropheee for you!
he'll say if you fall short of the minimum unique word requirement. But why 50 words?
His policy is: don't axe, don't tell.
wallyroo92 has also been Instagrammed & Tweeted! https://www.twitter.com/poeticmedics/ https://www.instagram.com/poeticmedics/
Still undecided about going on an adventure with us? You've got until Midnight of March 30th to join. However, you may want to consider bringing noise canceling headphones. Gimlyroo plays the drums. And you know how Dwarves love Rock.
Our Fellowship so far!
