I thought I'd post another excerpt from my upcoming YA fantasy novel DE. This, one's much more lighthearted!
Sometimes, right in the middle of a very serious or pivotal scene, a character will say or do something so totally off the wall that you can't help but laugh! My character Penny does this to me every chance she gets (usually while she's facing down certain death) and I absolutely adore her for it!
Here's an EXCERPT:
"Doo-dee-doo-doo, doo-dee-doo-doo..." I sing in a hushed whisper.
DeAndre stops struggling against his tree trunk long enough to glare at me. "What the—? Did you just sing The Twilight Zone theme song?"
I sigh and shrug glumly. "I figure if we're gonna die, we miles well have a theme song."Hahaha Yep! That's my Lucky Penny! Give the girl dire circumstances to face, with a chance to speak her mind, and she will pleasantly surprise me every time! :)
