Hookers & Hangers Blog Hop Part Deux
Today is Part 2 of the Hookers and Hangers Blog Hop hosted by Falling for Fiction.
I am making my s.l.o.w. way around the other entries. I'm technically on vacation right now (a.k.a. not at home), so I don't have a lot of time online. I'm determined to make my rounds, however, so thanks for bearing with me!
Hangers are definitely my favorite part of a story. I mean, don't you love it when you're reading a great book and you don't even realize you've started a new chapter because you're so engrossed in finding out what's going to happen next? Love that.
Here is a selection of my favorite hangers from my WiP, The Crazy Part.
Hanger #1: "Do you believe people go somewhere when they die?" I ask Jackson.
Hanger #2: "Go!" Isaac yells.
Hanger #3: "They don't know for sure until they run some tests," Faith continues. "But whoever it is--" Her voice breaks off, "--was wearing Drew's clothes."
Hanger #4: "You can do it," Isaac says as I start toward the steps. "It's why you came."
Hanger #5: Maybe because this whole day Isaac's been operating outside his safe shell, and for the first time I'm convinced it's for me.
Hanger #6: I don't want him to see me at my second worst--feeding a bunch of bull to all America, because that's exactly what I'm about to do.
Hanger #7: I bolt upright, water flying off me in shards, gasping a breath as if it's my last, just as the doorknob turns.
That's it, folks!
P.S. I'm giving you more hangers than hooks because I like my hangers better ... Maybe that shows I need to work on those hooks!
