|"The new guy's an idiot...but that was a great line. I'll have to use it in my novel."|
"The pen is the tongue of the mind." Miguel de Cervantes
And sometimes real life provides dialogue that our pens can have fun with incorporating into a work in progress.
What are some great lines you've heard in real life, said by a spouse, friend, child or relative?
My favorite was said by an acquaintance at my gym. I didn't hear it first hand, but she told me after the fact.
She'd been crudely propositioned by a military man, and her response to him from the StairMaster was as follows:
"I don't care how many battles you've fought or how many people you've killed, but if you say something like that to me again, I'm gonna get down off here and make sure you'll never be able to fight again!"
I'll have to use that in my next manuscript! Now it's your turn--share a great line and who said it!
