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

Early Thanksgiving Blogfest/NaNo prompt 7

Hello everyone- My blogfest entry is going to be simple, a top ten list, and my Nano prompt will follow below the entry.

 What am I grateful/ thankful for?

 10) College
 9) pens
 8) computers
 7) to be alive
 6) being published
 5) this blogging/writing community
 4) Friends
3) Family
 2) My Manly man (who supports most my decisions. )
 1) My children

 NaNo prompt:
 Try giving your characters something to be grateful for, maybe they can write a thank you letter? maybe they receive a thanks by some admirer? Perhaps they are just thankful you wrote about them, But try to incorporate it into your NaNo writing for a challenge. :) Best of luck to you all!

 I hope with all my heart everyone eats until they are stuffed, enjoys many laughs with their friends and family, and relaxes...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

WHAT, no fairies to be thankful for? I just entered this fest this morning at the last minute.

Hoping you have a stuffed, safe and full of smiles Thanksgiving my friend. :D

It's important to have those people who support your decision to pursue a writing life. The life chosen isn't always easy, but it lets us be who we were meant to be. Excellent list!

I like pens. I have one weird one that wraps around your pointer finger. helped when I had a broken wrist.

Chris Phillips said...

Good list. Sometimes I'm less thankful for computers than others. Happy Thanksgiving.

Nice list of thankful things. You asked, my character is thankful that the symberveen (a monster in my high fantasy) didn't take off with her and that the prince was able to rescue her. He's good looking but...she is an American and well...she'd like to go home where there aren't any symberveen.

True! If you weren't alive, none of the other things would matter.
Happy Thanksgiving, Summer!

Awww Have a wonderful and fabulous Thanksgiving with your adorable children, manly man, friends and loved ones!!! Take care

Being alive - definitely a good thing to be thankful for! ;)

Pens are great. I especially enjoy the colored variety (purple, green, red).

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Hi Summer. I like your KISS list. Thanks for the NaNo prompt. I'm still 14,000 short and may incorporate the letter idea. Thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for pens and computers because they get us closer to publication. Great post.

Lovely post! The things we take for granted are usually what give balance to our lives!

Thanks for following! I want to follow you as well, but looked and looked and don't see where I click to follow. Help!

Nate Wilson said...

Eh, being alive is overrated. Now, pens on the other hand...

Great list, Summer, and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
