Road Trip Wednesday #42: How Would You Impress the Hunger Game Judges?

Welcome to our 42nd Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
What would you do to impress the Hunger Game judges?
(please, no spoilers!)

Amanda: "If put into a life or death situation I would lose all ability to be clever or quick-thinking, and probably control over my bladder."

Kate " might strike fear into the hearts of my enemies, but probably not in the way I'm hoping."

This week's song:
"Kung Fu Fighting" - Carl Douglas and Vivian Hawke

Next Week:
 The best book you read in August
Amanda Hannah

Amanda grew up on a big farm in a small town with one stoplight, one school, and a handful of imaginary friends.She would’ve gone to college forever, but eight years and five majors tested her advisor’s patience. So she moved to Germany to explore creepy castles before landing in Spain where she’s perfecting her Flamenco.

    oh if I only had mad skillz.

  2. I'm not sure that I can do much that is impressive. Especially to the HG judges. I can recite poetry like mad, though. I could stun them with my recitation of some Shakespeare, or bore them to tears with a classic rendition of "Ode to a Grecian Urn." Yup, that's all I've got.

  3. Thanks to this (awesome) question, I have learned which of my writerly friends can shoot guns today. (I am totally not one of them!) Good to know, in case things really go down.

  4. While I haven't read any of the three, I did talk about death and reality TV. That counts, right?

  5. I wish I was more Game-worthy! :)

  6. This is an AWESOME prompt!! LOL

    Never underestimate the underdog with a psych degree.

  7. This is my First Road Trip and I had a blast! Looking forward to next week!

  8. Whew! I made it just before Wednesday ended. But I probably wouldn't make it through the first day of the Hunger Games...

    Here's my post:
