Tolkien had the upside of a bitingly chilly week in which to compose, yet had struck a sticky patch. Everything outlined or composed before was of little utilize, however with awesome work he had composed all the matter up to Frodo's catch in the high go to Mordor. Presently he said he needed to convey the other people up to the last crash. He inquired as to whether Shelob was a decent name for a colossal creepy crawly. It was just "she+lob" (= spider) yet was dangerous composed as one.
Proceeding with the letter on May 22, Tolkien reported another pathetic frosty day. He had worked hard on his section, which was debilitating as the peak drew nearer. With numerous minor issues of plot and component he had composed, torn up, and reworked ordinarily. His prize was to hear both C.S. Lewis and Charles Williams state that the most recent sections were the best in this way. Gollum kept on developping most intriguingly.
