J.R.R.Tolken the best!
Because of him, I was able to understand what a truly amazing fantasy world is like. Thanks to him, I started writing myself. I haven't blogged yet and I think I still have a lot of work to do. But I am already being called to write for the university newspaper. Are there any people here who write for themselves or writers?

As well as J.R.R Tolken, I like Marcus Zusak as well
What is your favourite Markus book? At the moment I'm going to write an article for my university newspaper on the "Underdog" book. But actually I think my paper is bad from a design point of view. Do you know which graphics editor is the easiest to learn?

Terry Pratchett for me.
There are stories I have liked more than any particular one of his (if sticking with fantasy then the prince of nothing series... wonderful) but there has been nothing that has even come close to opening my eyes as much to the potential of language (and it was not like I was unaware beforehand), repeated between the eyes skewering of any institution, trope, commonly held notion or archetype, consistently memorable characters (I mentioned prince of nothing above and while I can remember major characters and the plot then there are sure to be side characters lost out, I can remember Discworld ones in books I have not read in over 20 years), common reference among people I respect (and that is not something I seek when getting to know someone, just that those that I end up keeping around have an appreciation all of their own) or book series more likely to see me up at 5am still reading them despite having important things to do for several days on the trot.

There is always the reading order debate here. https://www.bookseriesinorder.com/terry-pratchett/ I would say chronological up to Moving Pictures and then any you think interest you from there, or maybe ones that continue storylines you liked. That said there are plenty of other viable alternatives and standalone ones that might also do.

My favorite book by Markus is the Book Thief, I suggest reading it, don’t be overwhelmed by the 580 pages. Also I like to use Adobe Creative Suite for graphics editing, everything I have made with that has been very successful.

Oh, that's cool. I'm really glad I struck up a conversation with you. I've already tried various methods to solve this problem. I even used the newspaper template from https://thegoodocs.com/freebies/newspaper-templates/. I don't particularly like this way out of the situation, but not mastering graphic editors, I haven't found any other method. I'll try to do something in Adobe. I think I will be able to do it.
