Characters: Bilbo & Frodo

Woo hoo!! Drabble number two, just for you.
Yes, there is an art to it. Absolutely.
But form must dominate substance, my boy.
And if you don't stop looking so perplexed
I shall stop talking altogether. There now.
That's better. Where was I? Ah yes.
Alliteration... an abysmal affectation -- always avoid.
Prepositions... tricky little buggers you should never
end a sentence with. Clichés... avoid like the plague.
Similes... they're as bad as clichés. One-word sentences...?
Eliminate. And for pity's sake, don't be redundant --
don't say things more than once -- don't reiterate --
it's highly superfluous.
There now, Frodo... you see? Writing is really very simple.
