#1 Line Wednesdays

Consider these 5-seconds-to-digest lines from my works-in-progress speed dating for readers. Quick aside: Is speed dating really even a thing that happens outside of TV shows and movies? I could watch the Paris Gellar speed dating scene in Gilmore Girls on a loop, but I've never actually met anyone who's done it in real life. Maybe-not-so-quick aside over.

But for the moment in time when I wrote this, these were the books and characters I was most in love with for one reason or another.


Writer's are taught to use exclamation points sparingly. The recommendation I've heard is no more than two in an entire book. I used both of mine for this home page in the title because I'm that excited to keep in touch (but now I'm out of exclamation points for this sentence, so insert enthusiasm here).
