Here is a short piece I wrote in early 2003 on Frodo and denial. abby_normal had just asked me if she could host it on her site, - thank you, Carole.:) - but I didn’t expect Middle-earth News to link to it. As a result, you may already have read it. You can find it here.
As a bonus, I originally also posted a link to an early draft of an epilogue to All That I Had. If you didn't read it at the time, sorry, I've taken it down, but you can read the final version in the fullness of time. Just don't hold your breath, it's going very slowly...
A big hug to frodosweetstuff for such a lovely idea as Hobbit Month. :)
ETA: sorry to post early (for some). I had intended to post at my daughter's today, but I discovered late last night that she doesn't have internet access. Have fun. I'll be back tomorrow.
