One of the things that makes writing worthwhile, and makes it easy to sequester yourself in that room and focus for hours on end, are all those little jewels that pop up when you least expect them. You know those lines I'm talking about. They snap into place like they were specifically crafted for that spot in the WIP. They come out of nowhere and make you giggle, or snicker, or tear up.
Weeks later, when you're re-reading the manuscript for the fourth or fifth time, they still make you giggle, or snicker, or tear up.
Every manuscript has them. Heck, almost every chapter of every manuscript has them.
So let's share some here.
Post your favorite line from your first chapter and then your second one. A bit of set up is fine..or you can just let that line shine on its own.
From The Cat's Meow.
Chapter One: Rianna's syrupy response sounded eerily familiar, like something Bree might have said herself, oh--say--a dozen or so times in the past.
Chapter Two: The wreck clung to life with one determined belch after another. He was about to knock on the driver's window and tell her to pop the hood so he could yank the distributor cap when it cut loose with one last elephantine fart and lapsed into blessed silence.
Okay so I cheated on that last one. :LOL:
So what are your favorite lines?
