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

Around the blogs

Have you missed any of these?

Rachel Morgan wrote a great post with Simile and metaphor practice. If you want to help yourself describe something better, take a look at her exercise.

 Shannon at wringing out words posted some great revision advice. check out her post on Polish and shine

Cristin at accidents and incidents has some very helpful revising advice. I'm new to her blog, but I thought this post helpful for the revising process. check out her post revising by color

From Roland I found a great post on query letters. He shows the map in this post Map the way to a winning query

PK has a pretty interesting take on dialogue with examples in her post:  Dialogues do's and don'ts

I recently found a new blog hosted by Draven Ames. his blog makes you think about many things and I like it for this reason, read his poem Quarter Lap I promise you will not be disappointed.

Nathan Bransford had a great post on Comments for blogs. check out what he had to say Here

Emily has a great guest blogging she needs help with on Goobers- basically writing blunders that people are willing to share. I think it sounds like a terrific idea so go check her post out Here
