Having introduced an hobgoblin into my novel, I’m a bit at a loss for what to do with it. He is part of the protections around the Jekylls’ London house and loyal to the family in his own way, but does he advance the story? do I really want (well, I want, do I need) to introduce non-human magic users into the story? I’m fighting the knowledge that this wonderful character doesn’t belong. Damn, damn, damn. I could vividly imagine him lurking among the rose bushes. He’ll have to lurk a while longer till I have time to write his story.
