This week, YA Highway wants to hear your favorite lines whether they were written by you, read recently, or both.
Well, seeing as it's late this morning, and my brain is consumed with a Shiny New Idea, I'll give you something from my WIP, BECAUSE SHE SAYS SO.
It is from the very beginning of the story (though not the first line) and it sets the stage for everything that follows:
"Little girls around the world make wishes every day. On stars, on crossed fingers – whatever they believe may work. So, little did I realize when I wished on my favorite book that my wish would come true.
Wishes never come true.
But this one did.
And I wish it hadn’t."
There you have it -- my premise in fifty words. :)
Another of my favorites, from the same WIP, is this which shows Kate's sarcasm nicely I think:
"Prince Charming isn’t so charming when he’s trying to kill you."
And perhaps I'll give you the line I spouted off yesterday that has sparked a Shiny New Idea that I am completely obsessed with now:
"Hi, my name is Liza, and I'm your resident dream crusher. Welcome to reality."
What are your favorite lines? I hope you enjoyed mine!
