And don't ask how long it took to write THAT! You don't want to know... ;)
I'm guessing 15 really solid, focused minutes. Yes! ;D
Aerlys, I read that at lunch in the work break-room laughing out loud, and got a few curious glances my way. I think you are missing your calling. You should be writing weekly family antidotes, or children's epic tales  Mini-Mister, the Conqueror of Leisure Time.

Elec, If you can do that in 47 minutes perhaps you could be a contender for the November NanoWriMo. I have heard that some people can actually succeed with this challenge. I can not even imagine writing so fast.  ;D

I had time this morning to peck away at it. There is a bit more to read. I'll just keep working at it and if you care to check in from time to time there may be a bit more to read.

It only works for me because I have story lines worked out in my head and I don't have time to write that matches my desired output. I can type passably well, and it sometimes flows right out. It really flows when I'm writing about the Deryni. I wish my own material went to paper as smoothly.

@Elec: 
* Evie dies laughing at Albin's "message" in the updated story!

Please continue.  Only, if you're going to just update your Google Doc as you go rather than posting chapters here, please post a notice letting us know when there is more available to read, or at least at the end of each new chapter).  Otherwise, many of us tend to be quite "out of sight, out of mind."  Or at least I definitely am.  I would hate to miss Albin's continuing adventures due to forgetting to check the link regularly.

Oh, I have plenty of storylines in my head. I just can't seem to get them out of my cranium and onto paper. Forget Dragon Voice Recognition software. I've decided that I need Deryni Brain Recognition software. Much faster.

That little glimpse into my writing challenges was practically a dictation! I did leave out the part where Mini Mister put a throw pillow on my head and said, "Here's your wart, Mommy."  :o

I've thought about doing children's fiction, but haven't taken the leap, yet. At least I have a test audience handy. :)

Glad I could give y'all all a chuckle. I'll grab a bottle of Fianna red and be right over, Jerusha. :D

Nah. Closest I ever got was the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia (and they definitely have their own way of speaking), and I didn't stay long!

I'm actually a "you guys" kind of gal, but was feeling a bit punchy last night.  :)

Round here it would be  "yous all" :)
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Been pecking at it this afternoon in between calls from work. There's a bit to read.

Nice addition, Elec.  That's a little lesson Albin will remember, I'm sure.  Looking forward to more.

Bit off a little more than he really wanted to chew, did he?  Heh.  Love Kelson's reaction to the situation!   ;D

Hope someone is going to rescue the poor lad before too long though

Albin looked sick.
Poor Albin, that is almost cruel of Kelson.  :D Unfortunately, Albin earned it. He will learn. That is, I do hope he will live long enough to learn.

It was the Kelsonus Rex that got me - Albin's really in trouble when Kelson goes all Latin and pulls rank. Ok - it's a taste of his own medicine but Byzantium is a cruel place to be taught a lesson
