So I think that plays in your favor… on 22 Aug at 7: Brett on 24 Sep at 4: For example, is there much urgency as a daughter waits for her mother at the hospital?
I try to weave the description in on later rewrites. Jolly-and-argumentative sounds like a really interesting combination of character traits.
What is the relationship between the plot and, say, your three breeds of elves?
Rowling successfully used many imaginary words like Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Griffindor, Hufflepuff, Hogwarts, Gringotts, Diagon Alley, Muggle, etc… I like the idea of your dwarves being jolly and argumentative rather than gruff.
