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

Word to the writer "Series" and blogfest

First- don't forget my New creation blogfest is tomorrow, I can't wait to see your 2 sentences! Sign up at the top of my blogposts

I'm not all wise and knowing, but I have strolled around the block of writing and classes a time or two. So I'm starting this series as "word to the writer" because every essay, short story, poem, or novel starts with a word.

Starting on Thursday I will post my first installment of this series. I'm going to give advise on how to improve your writing. 

Sure there are lots of people out there telling you how to write...but I'm not telling you how to write, I'm going to give you ideas, encourage the best part of your writing to come through, and give you a general idea of where to start revising your project. 

Some of these steps you may know, some of the steps you might not have thought about previously, and some of them you might find inspiration in.

 But no matter which way you look at it, if you do each step, you will be that much closer to a more appealing story. No I am not saying if you do these steps you will be published, but I am saying it will improve your writing.

 Now with that said, look for my first post in this series called "Polish" on Thursday.

Great idea, Summer! A lot of people are quick to tell us how we SHOULD write, rather than encourage us to just write better. Good luck with the series!
