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

 Q:
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when your significant other says "Can I read something to you?"

Many Man's Answer:

"Please don't let it be boring, so I don't hurt her feelings"

Q:
Do you have a memory about your significant other and writing that you think is funny, sad, unhappy ect...?

Manly Man's Answer:


"The morning that she found out she had won a short story in a publication and got her first paid poem published all on the same morning"

Q:
How do you feel about pens?


 Manly Man's Answer:

"They write what is there to feel? Unless you are obsessed like someone I know."

Q:
Whats the best part about having a writer for a significant other?

Manly Man's Answer:

"Knowing every thing you do has a chance of being immortalized forever in literature."

Q:
What advice would you give someone who wants to date a writer?

Manly Man's Answer:

"Be ready for them to suddenly jump up mid conversation grab a note book and start scribbling while muttering what a good Idea."

Very sweet of you to participate. Sometimes it's hard for us writerly type to understand why everyone doesn't want to put fingers to keyboard. You are a good sport.
