Road Trip Wednesday

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: It's (the day before) Valentine's Day! Let's jumpstart the lovefest by blogging about what you love most about writing (and/or reading)!

When I read, I love it when:

  • It's past my bedtime, but I could manage one more chapter...
  • By page one I'm hooked
  • I get so excited about a book I tweet/call a friend/or post online about it before I'm even finished
  • A story catches  me by surprise, either with a character, plot twist, or stellar writing

When I write, I love it when:

  • I can make a reader laugh, other than myself
  • When a plot ties together with theme and the characters
  • I discover a delicious new detail that is so specific and/or well-researched, I know I'm satisfied even if no one will ever pick up on it
  • I marathon-write and it's actually good

How about you? What do you love most about reading or writing?


  1. Yes, laughter is important to me too!

  2. I love it when I'm writing and I surprise myself with a thought that will be a perfect addition to the MS. It seems incredible to me that I thought of it, but then, it was the muse speaking.
