Weekend Writing Warriors – The Gnomes are Missing 8

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

I’ve decided to switch to something new and share snippets that I wrote during April for Camp Nanowrimo, from the first draft of “The Gnomes are Missing.” I hope you enjoy them. Kinwer and his pixie friend Trish are in the feast hall of the dwarfs’ Clan King.

“Patience, sire,” another of the advisers said. “All may not be as it seems–perhaps some other enemy has taken these simple mound folk from near the Morwi river, and left the badge to cover their crimes. You know that such things have happened in the tales.”

“Yes,” the king grumbled. “And even if they were not the perpetrators, the goblins would not likely be polite if we sent them a message. It will take cunning to discover the truth without mis-stepping.”

“I realize that, your Majesty,” Trish said. “I had hoped to travel the tunnels fashioned by your people until I found the goblins, and scout out their lairs to discover if they were indeed holding prisoners.”

    Interesting snippet. I found myself reading the passage with a regal voice in my head, and I like the formality of the characters; however, I wondered who Trish is, and if her voice needs to be more lax than the others. The answer to that question depends on who the character is portraying.

    Interesting and well done piece.



  2. Enjoying this story, like all the details, great 8!


  3. And I thought my politics were comnplex!

    Sounds like she has a good plan – but of course it won’t go smoothly. Great snippet!

    Sounds dangerous, going into goblin lairs. But the less help Trish asks for, the likelier she is to get it, I bet!
