RTW: Presents for My Fave
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.
This Week's Topic:
What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character (or favorite character)?
One of my favorite characters in my current WIP is the protagonist’s best friend, his blindside on and off the football field, and a guy who, er…pretty much wears his manhood on his sleeve.
But he’s genuinely good-hearted, he says the corniest (and I think most hilarious) lines, and well…I just LOVE him.
And the ideal present(s) for my hero’s sidekick would include
1) Body glue (do they make this?!) or Velcro—to keep his clothes on. If he had any say in the school dress code, “birthday suit” would be an option.
2) A copy of World’s Best Pick-up Lines. Of course his charm outweighs his need for them at all.
3) Anger Management classes. He’s a little explosive. Just a little.
4) A new jersey number: 115. To represent the percent he puts out on the field, in his friendships. The size of his heart.
So, how about YOU? What’s your ideal present (or presents) for one of your characters?
PS – YA Highway is hosting this super awesome Winter Giveaway. Books, critiques from authors and agents. SO MUCH!
