If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

My poem is getting published!

You'll have to forgive my total excitement but my poem was accepted and I just received its publication date.
The poem is "Whiskey Kisses"
 Its about my mother, every day poets will be publishing it on September 15th. I even get paid for it! Its my first paying publication.  I'll probably post a couple reminders as the date draws closer, but I would love anyone who wants to read it and rate it. here is the site www.everydaypoets.com

~~~~~HAPPY ~~~~~~DANCES~~~~~~

Darn it though- does this mean I have to start over on my rejections? I had thirteen total before this one, If I start over counting, then I can always see how long the chain is in-between...or maybe I'll never get another publication in which case, the rejection collection keeps going...hmmm interesting development.

Good Show! Can you sleep? That's really awsome, and I'm a little jelous ;)

Congratulations! Nothing feels better than someone else believing your work so much that they'll publish it, let alone pay you for it. You're official!

Oh, a BIG congrats to you. I would do a happy dance too. :D

I'd put the rejections on a wall and then label them 1 by 1 "Not worthy of me." :D :D
