RTW: Favorite WIP lines

This week's Road Trip Wednesday topic is: what is your favorite line from your WIP?

Some days I feel extra vain and I have lots of favorites, and some days I want to murder every word. But there are a couple I particularly like, even on the murder every word says. And I like how pretty Kate's post looks with her quotes in fun-fonted images so I'm going to be a copier and do that too. (Plus I haven't had a reason to use PhotoFiltre in a while--I may have gotten carried away. But it could have been worse).





What are your favorite lines from your WIP? Share on YA Highway!

Love the imagery from Unthawed! I got cold just reading.

Sarah Enni said...

"like playing Russian Roulette with tetanus." YES. And I agree with Kara, the imagery in all the Unthawed quotes is beautiful!

Sometimes I prefer quotes out of context. That way you really appreciate every single word. :)

Chill-inducing! Seriously.

And I do think it's great to have days that are filled with favorites, they cancel out the days when you feel like everything is rubbish.

Kirsten Hubbard said...

LOL -- I remember the Russian Roulette line from So Dead. and the mix of lovely & dreadful in Unthawed is totally intriguing.

Alicia Gregoire said...

I love that Russian Roulette line. That's going to roll around in my head for a while.

Emilia Plater said...

Whoa, that spring one is such perfect imagery. I love all these, my genius girl! :D

Kate Hart said...

I like to get copied. It makes me feel special.

So very intrigued by the cave lion claws...

I remember that tetnas one from So Dead and I loved it at the time! I think I love still! Amazing.

As for Unthawed, absolutely beautiful imagery! I love your writing.

Kate said...

Katy said...

Ooh, love these! Lyrically creepy, in the best of ways. :)

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Love the tetanus one especially! Great stuff.

Tracey Neithercott said...

Is it morbid of me to say my favorite is about the spots of crimson melting down the wall? That's great. I love them all though!

Kathleen said...

I have a Russian Roulette line in mine but it's not nearly as cool as yours. Seriously love it.

Bri said...

Is it gloomy of me to say my choice is about the spots of cherry melting down the wall? That's great. I love them all though!
