Writing Song of the Day: “When You Were Young” by The Killers
So it’s the second day of the school year for Quita and me, but we still have time to take a little road trip with the lovely ladies of YA Highway.
This week for Road Trip Wednesday they want to know:
What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?
Ooh, good question! Probably our favorite one so far…but it also completely stumped us.
After much, MUCH thought, Quita came up with Ms. Sookie Stackhouse herself from the Charlaine Harris series. Why? Perhaps because she was Bella Swan before there was even a Bella Swan–not to mention she has some kick ass fairy powers. And pretty much every guy she meets, supernatural or otherwise, falls in love with her. That is one problem we’d LOVE to have.
We actually stole our other choice. I saw that the lovely Katy Upperman mentioned Dexter Morgan, star of one of our favorite TV shows evah. And Dexter would be awesome to see as a teen. We already have a vague idea of his background based on flashback, but to be there in the moment with him while he makes his first kill and discovers his dark passenger? Whoa. Okay, we realize that sounds a little demented, but hey–we’re writers. That gives us a crazy pass.
What about you all? Who would you love to see as YA character?
