The Elves are so over my taking my time with the second draft of The Dire Deeds of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits. They’ve issued an ultimatum: “Beltane or else!” The illustration below is an Elf giving stink eye…(with just a hint of immortal melancholy).
Seriously, I’ve decided to set and meet a May 1st deadline for finishing the second (and hopefully final) draft, with the exception of a little copy-editing. I’m up to Chapter 28 so far and moving along nicely, even with an exhausting, extensive revision of Chapter 27.
After all, there’s no way I want to seriously annoy an Elf!
