Hello again! While you’re writing a book, you may find that a few of the sentences or dialogue you come up with stick with you. They might not change much, if at all, through dozens of revisions. You like them just the way they are. Some are witty, some are catchy, and some of them you just like. These are quotes from Dream Date that I found memorable. If you haven’t read the book, the sentences below won’t give you any spoilers.
