Road Trip Wednesday #62: Best Line

Welcome to our 62nd 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 is your favorite line from your WIP (or from a book you read recently)?

Kirsten: "At that moment, I would have followed her anywhere..."

Kate: "I'm still reading a lot for rewrites, like..."

Emilia: "Occasionally a line will fall from your fingers, splosh onto the keyboard, and leave you feeling stunned..."

Amanda: "Goosebump-inducing . . ."

Kaitlin: "Some days I feel extra vain and I have lots of favorites..."





Next week’s topic:

  19. I have to go with a line from a comic book I just read this morning called The Black Canary Archives Vol. 1 by DC comics.

    "I never thought I'd live to see Thunderbolt unconscious!" - spoken by Johnny Thunder

    Since I liked Black Canary's response I'll add it as well: "You'll never live to see anything again if he doesn't wake up!" I think her line especially adds to his. Great humor there!

  26. One of my favorite lines from my YA Paranormal Romance, WIND, is:

    She had shed her sweet, little girl chrysalis and become a dark, brooding butterfly—black leather jacket, black skinny jeans, T-shirts with skulls, crosses and other Goth symbols, the two spider bite piercings in her lower lip, and under the sweep of hair over her eyes, two half-moons of inky-black eye shadow.

    Here's my link, as well (I've blogged about it!):
