I never really thought of having a favourite race. I guess if I were to choose, it would have to be either elf or dwarf. I like the grace of elves (of which I personally have none) and the gruff brute that tends to be dwarf.

The outline - been reading a lot about how to write lately, some of the archetypal ideas and what makes a story "good" in terms of structure. It's helping me create a plot that might keep an reader entertained for more than 2 pages... at least the ideas are forming in my head.

Pointers for fantasy - I started with Wheel of Time by the late Robert Jordan. BIG series... I moved next to The Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind. I've read both series' more than once, and they never get old for me. These however, don't have any fairies in them; they're worlds which rely on wizards and witches of sorts, not a lot of other magic races though.

I wish you well on your book about Goblins!
