First Lines

As you can tell, I’m a little late posting my first line thoughts because the SCBWI LA conference is in full swing and I’ve been busy running into, I think, every single person I know.

So instead of trying to force any analysis, I will drop the names of the finalists and then dissect their work and pick a WINNER on Wednesday. First, let me thank everyone who commented and shared their work. Such a supportive community! So much great feedback! Here are the first lines that caught my eyes from those submitted:

Stephanie Garber
Amy D.
Kayla Olson
Karen O’Donnell
Kait Nolan
Ashley E.

    Looking forward to reading your thoughts on all of these! Thanks for including mine in this bunch. :)
