Do you have a habit of writing for Teitho? If you don't, you can always make one! This month is especially good for that, because our theme for May is Habits.
Habit is a second nature, it is said. A habit is any acitity that is repeated regularly, whether it is healthy, like exercising, bad, like smoking, or neutral, like meeting with friends every Thursday. What kind of habits do people in Middle-eath have?
Smoking is a known one, but the unhealthy effects of it were not yet known in Tolkien's time, so it doesn't seem to be a bad habit in his world. Maybe they have a different kind of tobacco... Aragorn or Legolas could also have some training routines to improve their fighting skills, or maybe a habit of reading history books. But sometimes there just are no history books around, which brings us to the next point:
There may be habits that are possible to be followed only in a certain place and circumstances. How does it feel, having to go without it for a long time? And how does it feel, returning to the habit again? As circumstances change, it can also happen that one habit replaces another.
Whether writing for Teitho is your habit or not, we are looking forward to your stories!
