I almost missed the deadline on the WeWriWa website.  I was fiddling around with getting an ARC on my tablet when I noticed it was nearly midnight.  Oops…

“She’s just tired.  We’ve been walking for-ev-er.”  The knight wondered if the boy told the truth or exaggerated as children his age so frequently did, in his experience at least.

He stood and put his hand to his chest.  “Well, I am Sir Lionel of Ula.  As I said, I mean you know harm.  On my honor as a knight.”

The boy tilted his head like a dog, eying him cautiously, then simply smiled and turned as if to say, “You’ll do.”

  1. “…as if to say, “You’ll do.” Intriguing, Danielle. Your writing is very fluid, very natural. Good 8! 🙂

  2. Interesting how well the knight understands children. Great snippet!

    Hey, that’s a cute and engaging excerpt today! Thanks for sharing this particular bit with us.

  4. Very nicely done interaction. Good understanding of children from a Knight AND the ending makes the reader wonder what task/chore etc the boy thinks the Knight will/can accomplish. Nicely done.

    I like the knight. His understanding of this child is endearing. And the boy’s wordless take on the knight, “You’ll do,” is very good. Although the snippet is short, there’s an atmosphere that attracts me.

    So cute! I love the interplay of their characters.

  7. Chip says:
