I’m racing towards 30,000 words by the end of tonight, and have to stop every three sentences in order to find another Latin phrase.
The Lesson: don’t make your characters force you to have them use Latin for anything magical that they do, especially if you don’t speak it.
“Vah! Denuone Latine loquebar? Me ineptum. Interdum modo elabitur”
That would be Elle speaking there… Please excuse me while I go try not to just kill her off for being difficult.
