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

Wednesday Writing prompt ect...

  Honestly, I've been having so much fun creating "in their own words" for my characters in my notebooks, which has really inspired me to write  more than I have in a good long while. Granted its not exactly in the story, but hey I'm writing.

Tomorrow is the Guess the Character blogfest so my post will be up for that, then on Friday I'll post what the character really looks like, atleast from my side. On Saturday I have a fun little book review I did. After this weekend my classes at the college start. I'm not sure How much time I will have to post daily as I have been but I will do my best to post regularly, I'll even make some things in advance just in case for you guys!

I've also been reading in on other blogs and found some great advice for writers, have a look through these blogs...
Fun Manuscript parallel
Show Vs Tell
Comma usage
Title your book
not so humble verbs

So this weeks prompt is a picture. Look at it and beyond it, what do you see? Its like me looking out a window with descriptions, use a thesaurus this week and find different ways to describe the picture. If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a few descriptions should be easy :)

this is one of my own pictures from a road trip- I wont say where, cause I want you guys to do this without it. But isn't the view stunning?

She looked out at the rain filled lake surrounded by gently rolling hills and was amazed at its reflection. There between the glimmer of the sun and the ripples lay the sky. She saw the omen, she saw what the sky did say....

I'm jabber box can you tell? :D

That picture kind of reminds me of my road trip out west where the water met the edge of mountains. It gorgeous and I'm dying to know where it's from.

Summer Ross said...

Creepy Query girl- thank you and your right it is great practice and practice makes perfect- or something like that.

Jules-- that's wonderful _ love how you put the sky in it, great job!

Christina- I'll tell you the picture is from out west :)

Summer Ross said...

Tahereh-- Thank you- I'm glad you like it.


What a beautiful photo!! I'm not a writer so maybe you can email me and tell me where the photo was taken. I promise I won't tell anyone. It looks like some lakes we have here in Southern California.



Thanks for the lake location info.
