So what do your characters hide in their underwear drawer?
How to PWN nOObz and Become a Rock Star:
Colin: ABBA's Dancing Queen-- just because he's straight doesn't mean it's not a good song.
Bryce: The letter Dave's sister wrote to him before she died. It told him to never stop playing the piano, he quite after she was buried.
Dave: A picture of his sister, before she got sick.
Jason: the one review he was able to find on line about the Daisy Club.
Daniel: The key to his lockbox where he keeps his gay porn, because he is gay and terrified to let anyone know.
Lizzy: Thongs-- there's not a whole lot of depth there.
New York Karma:
Stephanie: The hospital bill from when her boyfriend beat her, so she never forgets what happens when she lets someone into her life that she can't control.
Spencer: his first demo, because one time before he sold out, he cared about music and the demo helped him get back on the right path. And the check stub of his first royality check.
Penny and Hank:
Penny: the necklace her mother gave to her. It was supposed to be from her "father" but her mother bought it for $35.
Hank: Puppy pictures of Bruiser, Meathead and Slacker. The candid picture of his family after the official family portraiture was taken. Satellite telephone just in case he accidentally kidnaps a girl.
The slight problem with this post, is that only people who have read my books would care about what's in my character's underwear drawer... it's just names and stuff, with no context for the reader. It's a fun exercise for me, but not so much fun for other people to read.
Also how are people getting the YA HIGHWAY roadtrip questions early? What do I need to go get it early? Should I send the girls at YA Highway cookies, ARCs of books that have never been published, namely the three mentioned above? Do I need to slaughter a goat, because I'm not really down with that. Do I need to quit my job via dry erase boards or see double rainbows?
