YA Highway: Road Trip Wednesday #125: Images & Imagination


Welcome to our 125th Road Trip Wednesday!

a photo I took in costa rica. creepy!

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, since this week's topic is a short one, you can include your answer in the comments.

It's been a while since we had an inspirational photos post, and we always love those. So...


This Week's Topic:
What images inspire/ represent your WIP or favorite book?

Road Trip Song of the Week:

"Summer Fog" by The Album leaf

    1. Fail! Tried putting in the html code above but it didn't show the actual code. Search for 'embed html links' on google and it'll give you the code.

    2. I totally cheat--I open a new post for my blog and type "here's mine" and then use the blogger editor to highlight it and make it link to the site. The editor then adds the correct HTML and I copy and paste it here.

    3. the html code is pretty easy. Use this, but remove the spaces between the angle brackets and the code.

      < a href="SITE ADDRESS" > LINK TITLE < /a >


      The code in the first bit of brackets starts the link and the slash a thing in the last bit of brackets ends the link.

      Hopefully that sort of makes sense?

  11. I'm working on a YA with Moby Dick-style influences, so one of the most inspiring things I came across was the 1930 edition of Moby Dick that features unbelievably expressive images by Rockwell Kent. Here's my post about it.
