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

NaNo prompt 5 and inspirational poem

We are to the half way point everyone. I have prompts for you and an inspirational video I found.


 Currently I'm stuck at my 10k in words- But I'm not worried. My priorities are simple- College classes then NaNo- I have a test I'm doing this week, so I studied for the weekend instead of writing.


 Ok for the Prompts: Lets focus again on getting the words onto the page.
 Here we go- all the others at this point were warm up- now we are going to see some heavier requirements from these prompts:


Write for at least 1000 words about a breakdown, a stone, a pawprint, and a mountain. Focus on describing characters. 


Write for at least 1000 words about a robe, a prediction, a gem, and a risk. 


Write for at least 1000 words about a death, a trigger, waves, and a bell. Focus on physical descriptions. 


Write for at least 1000 words about a dire deed, a prediction, and a messenger.


Write for at least 1000 words about an act of kindness, a house, and a crutch. 
 
Write for at least 15 minutes about a fall, a song, and a perfume bottle.

Write for at least 15 minutes about a lock, and a box of chocolates

 
Write for at least 20 minutes about a change in plans, a window, and a leader.

Write for at least 20 minutes about a reversal of fortune, a child, and a theatre.

I love the prompts Summer, they're fantastic!

I wish you a ton of luck on your classes! Sometimes priorities have to be set so that one thing can be completed rather than both being forgotten!

Still, congratulations on the 10K that's nothing to sneeze at!

Good luck, Summer! I'm glad you have priorities, and I hope you can accomplish both of your goals! I tried Nano last year and didn't last. It's not for me, but I admire others who do it!

The tips are good ones and if all your doing is putting words to paper, it works. I'll remember this if I ever get stuck, or should I say, when. The clip was inspiring.

Good luck with your writing.
