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

A-Z: "N"

N is represented today by the Nymph. (If you are offended by small amount of nudity- please do not read this post.)


A Nymph is not a Fairy. They do not have wings. They are said to be a spirit of nature, a Greek myth. They are most commonly found around lakes and the sea as well as in mountains. 

The Nymphs have several different kinds of spirits in the Nymph family, which I wont go into at the moment because it would be a very long post. One thing to note is these are a female creature similar to a siren. They are very provocative and are said to be seductive creatures/spirits.

There are lake nymphs in the story I'm writing right now. Of course I'm putting my own spin on it, and their beauty is, shall I say, unique. ;)

Happy N day!!!

Great word for today! I've read fantasy novels with wood nymphs; they seem to be the most popular. Sea nymphs are popular too, especially the siren-like ones. Watch out, naive sailors!

Love the word, love what they represent. I may have to use one or two in a novel someday.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm starting up a 'Critiquing Crusaders' program, where participants in the Second Crusade can find other writers to exchange critiques with or form critiquing circles. If you're interested, come by The Kelworth Files to check it out!

As you know I love nymphs and featured them in my post today, although they weren't the "N" word I wrote about.
