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 4

I reached 10,000 words this week! YAY! 
 
Have we reached the halfway marker yet?

Times screamed at my fairy muse: 2
Nervous breakdowns: 1
Number of pens thrown across the room:0 (I bought new pens though)
Days word count has been slacked:2
How many short stories completed: 3 working through the fourth and it will be longer than the others.



Exciting even thus far: 
I almost panicked when I saw that the short story for publication in the underground anthology went over ten pages. That took away some writing time to hunker down and fix, it comes before NaNo. But all has worked out and I've managed to bring it back to the ten page length it has to be. YAY


 Remember Monday I told you I had a couple sites for story prompts...well this one is a bit more in-depth. It has names, potions, fantasy stuff, romance things, writing themes, what if anators...every thing but the basic journal prompt ideas...lol 

So for this I'll see If I can give you a prompt from a couple sections: in which I will name the section above the prompt so you can find more of them...its more a generator type thing and has a lot of possibilities, so even if you can't use a story idea, you might find inspiration by just reading them :)


 exercises: Seventh Sanctum writing 



Section: POTIONS (describes potions)


The emerald elixir with gold bubbles. It smells like nuts, but tastes like butter and excrement.


Section: MAGIC ITEM- jewelry (has a drop down to choose from)


Deathly Writer's Amulet of Time and Viciousness


Section: STORY THEME GENERATOR


Setting: cyberpunk/post-apocalypse. Theme:occult rampaging monster story


Section: ROMANCE STORY GENERATOR


In this story, a greedy librarian falls in love with a sailor who has annoyed the gods.


Section: WRITING CHALLENGE GENERATOR


The story starts in a jungle. During the story, there is a visit by a very common visitor. The story must have a hellhound in it. The story must involve a wand in it. During the story, a character gets dirty.
My Sasha wants to know if the week is over yet?

10,000 is no small potatoes. Congrats on that. I love the selfish librarian and sailor who has angered the gods. I think the librarian is in for a lot of surprises.
