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

What am I doing?

Hello there fairy friends~

 Surprisingly enough I have pulled up my gumption and yet again set myself up for pure torture. Why do I do this to myself? Oh yeah because I am an author. And what does author stand for?
 A- Always
 U- Under
 T- Timed
 H- Hopes
 O- Of no
 R- Rejection

LOL- So I have submitted a nonfiction piece this time. The deadline is March 31st and The waiting game begins. I should hopefully know anywhere in the next few months if I have been accepted for a short list, and then again have to wait to see If I have been accepted for publication- So Two rounds. Wish me luck everyone and I will keep you posted.

 Have you submitted anything lately? Are you still awaiting status of a submission? How goes your writing endeavors?

Good luck! Hopefully you'll hear some good news about it soon. I often find the waiting the hardest thing about submissions. I have three still out there. I really need to get some more things to submit, though. Soon, very soon. :)
