The truth about elves… 2,266 words today, 27,056 words total, and a LOT of fun

By Holly Lisle

Tolkien aside, I have always preferred small, fast elvish trouble-makers to tall, willowy, blonde high elves.

And today I had a LOT of fun writing the little troublemakers, and got sheer joy reveling in knowing who they’re about to start making trouble for.

Some of what landed in the book today was a cut-and-paste save from Book 3 that had to be moved into Book 4.

A lot of it, though, was me having my ass out of bed at six a.m today and being to work by seven.

FUN writing day… and if past experience serves, that should make for fun reading when I go back through to revise these.
