Alright, bring it on!

VOTE: What’s My Next Line For the Line by Line Contest?

3 Feb

I am still in Karin Tabke’s First Line Contest. Pretty cool, huh? We’re down to the top 35! And so, without further ado, my lines thus far:

 

Seven lockers down, my boyfriend was making out with Cheryl, the way-too-perky head cheerleader.

I tried not to stare, but when his hand slid past her waist and over her hip, I slammed my locker shut and stormed off in the opposite direction. Not that anyone noticed. The problem – not only was I that gorgeous jock’s secret girlfriend, I also had a secret power.

I’m invisible.

OK, not invisible invisible. But, in the not-so-mythical land of Highschoolia where blending in equals obscurity, I rated a negative seven JD on the Jane Doe to Lindsay Lohan visibility scale.

 

At the moment, I have two potential next lines (of course, that could change if I come up with something funnier than paint.) This is kind of like Choose Your Own Adventure on the Luv YA blog. So:

 

LINE A: Four more points and I think I might have been able to walk through walls.

OR

LINE B: Not that I minded – well, typically.

 

So, let me know – A or B – or the both stink, keep working it Bri-lady 🙂

Line by Line Contest – Line #6

20 Jan

Wow! I made it thru another week at Karen Tabke’s First Line Contest!

If you’re just checking this out for the first time, here’s the low down: The 1st 100 people to post get to play. The first 2 weeks they cut 20 people each and then every week after that they cut 6….and I’m still in!!! Woot! 

Seven lockers down, my boyfriend was making out with Cheryl, the way-too-perky head cheerleader.

 

I tried not to stare, but when his hand slid past her waist and over her hip, I slammed my locker shut and stormed off in the opposite direction. Not that anyone noticed. The problem – not only was I that gorgeous jock’s secret girlfriend, I also had a secret power.

 

I’m invisible.

Ok, not invisible invisible.

 

What do you think comes next? Do you think I’ll make the cut again? Will AJ Chase kill off my heroine in the comments this week? Let me know!

2nd Line Is Up — Write My 3rd?

17 Dec

So, here’s what’s posted on Karin Tabke ‘s blog — there’s a lot of great ones and I don’t expect to 100% make this round. Go check some of them out after taking some more clever guess as LINE THREE!

Write My Second Line :)

16 Dec

If you clicked over to Karin Tabke ‘s blog when you saw I made the first cut in the First Line contest, then you know what my first line is. For those who didn’t:

 

 Seven lockers down, my boyfriend was making out with Cheryl, the way-too-perky head cheerleader.

 

I know what my next line is, but I’d love to hear what you think it should be 🙂

First Line Contest Results

15 Dec

Karin Tabke First Line contest on her blog posted the 80 that made the first cut. And guess what! I’m in!

 

Now, I just need to not think about it for a day, get some distance and post it when I’m “sure” —- or whatever goes for sure in this line by line panic situation!

Tomorrow’s the Big Day

14 Dec

Seriously, I’ve threatened to move out of the country and stop writing if I don’t make the first cut — Which I realize there is a very good chance could happen.

 

I don’t mind so much if I made the first cut and don’t make the next, but I really really really want to make the first cut.

 

Oh, first cut of what? Karin Tabke ‘s First Line Contest.

 

The lines that made it get posted “sometime Monday” —- Monday is officially 2.5 hours away.

 

I don’t suppose she’s sitting there waiting to hit the POST button at 12 am Bria Time?

 

Good Luck to all the entries!
