Dwarfs, Elves, Goblins, Trolls and my Little Grey Cells
For the last several days, I have been occupied with a short story about Dwarfs, Elves, Goblins and Trolls. Unlike most stories which escape from my mind, this one is taking its own precious time extracting itself.
I recently read Derek Haines’ latest blog post on his blog (Derek’s Vandalism of Words) about losing the plot, forgetting things, short term memory loss etc. Well in that regard, I seem to be having a problem with the plot of this particular story.
While I have successfully negotiated my way through the ‘back story’ leading up to the action, so far I’ve started the nitty gritty of the story no less than twenty times.
Where is J.R.R. Tolkien when I need him?
