We all take words for granted and often underestimate the power of them. They can make you smile, they can sting, and some words you never forget.
As a writer it reminded me of how lucky I am. I can create words and characters. The dialogue for characters can make you love or loathe them. The exciting thing about dialogue is that you can create a personality. Your hero or heroine can say things you never would. They can literally say anything - but it has to be in character. It has to come with some background to give an insight into why they would say that. I'm a huge fan of One Liner's. But if it doesn't come with a reason for it you can take your hero to zero in a second.
So what's your favourite one-liner? Who remembers "Nobody puts Baby in the corner"? My personal favourite of this week is the very drool worthy Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries. Damon's enemy is questioning his likeability. His response - "That's because you haven't had sex with me." The character Damon has the best one-liner's and he gets away it because we know his angsty past. It also helps that he has the most gorgeous eyes ever and often wears a towel ;-)
