Secret Stashes

Every Wednesday, YA Highway asks their readership a simple question to answer on your blog. Once you answer, you your link in the comments for other readers to hop on board. This is Road Trip Wednesday.

Today's question: What does your character hide in their underwear drawer - or other secret location?


I got to admit, this is something I've never thought about while working on character development. As far as I know, Cheyenne doesn't physically hide anything. Mentally is a different story. She has secrets as do most people and those she keeps locked pretty tight.


Since this week I'm working on editing my NaNoWriMo project,* this RTW is timely. I have characters who definitely have things to hide. Grimoires. Weapons. Contraband. Cryptozoological animals. Not to mention the affair that shouldn't be happening. Some of these things already have secret locations. The grimoires are in a secret compartment behind government-approved books. The animals are in cells below a house that looks like it wouldn't have a makeshift dungeon below. Everything else needs to be figured out, though.


I did discover Phantasma's hiding place the other week, however. She can't hide much in a Christmas Stocking, especially when The White One likes to dive into things with mouths. Tasma was hiding chocolate bars.


That's right. Chocolate bars. In the summer. In a Christmas stocking.


The White One temporarily changed color.


Comment below about where you hide things or where your characters hide things. Also, don't forget to check out what others are saying over at YA Highway.


AND IF YOU HAVEN'T, COMMENT ON THE CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE STORY. Poor Sidney needs some closure, after all.
