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

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. I was finishing up a final paper- which was my very last one for this semester. WooHoo! I'm on free time now! I wont know grades for another one to two weeks though. As soon as I have them I will let you all know how I did.

 I have completed seven stories so far for the Story a day challenge. I took a few days off to get through the loose ends of homework. 

 I also have three stories into submissions, one of them is my nonfiction piece I wrote for my creative nonfiction class. I really liked how it turned out so I submitted it.
I wont know if any of the stories will be accepted until July, so keep your fingers crossed for me.

 Also I have officially been put up as staff at Every Day Fiction Scroll down to the bottom to see my picture and Bio. I was so excited to see it when I checked it two days ago! Being a slush pile reader is not easy though and over the break I intend to get through as many stories as I can before my summer semester starts. I have already read over 150 stories for this online magazine. For me it is a wonderful accomplishment and even greater is the fact that they will keep me on as long as I want the position, so I must be doing something right.

 So Fairy friends how is your writing going? Have you submitted to anywhere?

Life has thrown me a few curve balls lately eating up my time. Which means I haven't gotten much writing done. Congratulations are in order for you though, so many accomplishments.

I've been editing and writing. I was actually happy that blogger went down. I could get some serious writing time in.

Congrats on your new job. Have a fun summer reading!
