Ten writers for children. All with something to say.


Short for Something

"Is Sam short for something?"

"Samantha." Sam stuck her finger in her mouth. "I hate that name. What about Eddie?"

"It's short for Edwina. I hate that more. I don't like Eddie that much either. I'm going to change my name this year to something cooler, more distinct."


"Edie. From now on I'm Edie."

"I like it, Edie."

Love the photo that accompanies the dialogue. Are we looking at a new Y.A. novel John?

Christy said...

Picture with text is so evocative!

Diane, just an image from online that was free to use. but I am working on a new YA novel and enjoying it.

Very natural dialogue, John, and the connection with our own Edie made me smile. Very clever!
