Flawed Heroes and Drunken Gnomes


I’m not completely sure how I feel about this, but my most developed story so far concerns a boozer gnome who is pegged to help the town elder defeat a family of people that are building a house too close to their village. Basically, the village is protected by a magical veil that, for the most part, shields them from the prying eyes of pesky humans. However, the elder, who is the last of a dying breed of magi, is concerned because his magic is failing and the oracle bones he threw chose a lazy, cider-sopped gnome to be his replacement. Will they be able to push back the humans? Will the drunkie gnome be able to grab hold of his destiny and lead his people to victory? Or will he instead wake up to the sound of bulldozers ripping through his shitty tree stump house? Don’t know yet. Stay tuned.

On an unrelated note, why is WordPress always “new” and “improved” so much so that I can’t navigate to settings pages that I am fairly sure used to exist sometime within the last six months. Bah humbug.

  1. I still can’t figure out how to get my avatar up on the url bar and, Goldarnit, I’ve tried everything!

    LOVE your story, by the way. I think the gnome should also hurl a Molotov cocktail at the bulldozer.


  2. I’m staying tuned (and imagining the story unfold as you clack away on Regina’s keys…)! About WordPress always being “new and improved,” I’m new at blogging and pretty clueless, so I thought all my navigating problems were just me… I did notice there was something totally screwy with the stats page a few days ago.
    Anyhoo, thanks for following me — it’s now mutual! 🙂
