Road Trip Wednesday #109: Santa Baby... Santa Teenager

Welcome to our 109th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, 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 - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character (or favorite character)? 

Road Trip Song of the Week:
"Don't Shoot Me Santa" by The Killers 
Emilia Plater

Emilia is a YA author who avoids studying, food that isn't covered in cheese, and waking up before 10:30AM whenever possible. A bundle of confusions.

  3. My nano11 MC1 would want a music voucher for her mp3 player. MC2 would want a new French study guide. The MC from nano10 doesn't do presents.

  23. My WIP mc is so not me. I'm having fun hanging out in her head. I think she might like a leather catsuit a la Emma Peel.

  24. My first time on RTW! I did a post with my answer but the short version is a) a nice edition of Pride & Prejudice and b) gloves for sword-fighting. This was fun to think about!
