Susan had always enjoyed archery, and been good at it, although it was rather old-fashioned. She had never imagined that it would be useful, however – that was pure serendipity, that she could use her skill in Narnia.
Other skills were not so easy to achieve. She reminded herself that everything worthwhile required time and a good deal of practise, and that she had not become an archer overnight. No more should she expect herself to rule perfectly from the beginning, even if Aslan thought her worthy and she had her brothers' and sister's help. Time and effort would bring results.
