Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Well, I take a week off from WWW for TNEO stuff, but here’s more sentences the first draft of “The Gnomes are Missing.” I hope you enjoy them. Last time, two weeks ago, Kinwer and Trish preparing for their quest.
The dwarf handed him a light wooden stick, maybe five feet long.
“Don’t try to use this stick as a club or staff in a fight unless there’s no other choice; it’ll snap into pieces on the first solid hit. Have you any experience with arms, human child? I imagine you’ll have a chance to learn with the goblins, before you’re done, hmm.”
He went to a rack of weapons in the corner and pulled off a sword, holding it with both hands.
“I suppose this would do as a short sword for you. It doesn’t look like much, but it’ll hold an edge; needs some sharpening, but that’ll give you a chance to get familiar with her.”
The dwarf immediately started in on a long lecture about how to care for swords; not just sharpening, but how to clean it when you got blood or other gore on the blade, how to oil it and so on.
