Pointers from a goblin

Labyrinth is one of my all-time favorite childhood movies. It occurs to me that there are some good writing tips in there.

Sometimes I find myself writing stuff like this:
"Goblin king, goblin king, wherever you may be, take this child of mine far away from me!"

When the magic words are much simpler:
"I wish the goblins would take you away."

"Where'd she learn that rubbish? It doesn't even start with 'I wish.'"
I'm thinking that goblin could make an excellent writing coach.
