Road Trip Wednesday #68: Whaddya Know . . .


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 is super interactive:
What do you want to know about writing and getting published? Post one question on your blog, then visit other RTW blogs and offer up your advice to their question. Hopefully, all RTW participants will get a handful or more answers to their question.


Kate: I'm going to answer your question with a question.
Kirsten: Which excerpt entices you the most? (okay I'm sort of cheating here. but, it's a publishing Q! & I need your help!)



Song of the week:
Check Yes or No by George Strait

  5. I typed up my question based on last night's YA Highway tweet, so it has absolutely nothing to do with publishing. It's still fun though! :)
