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

Lovin Language blogfest Entry

I'm posting on a Monday for a special treat to myself- A blogfest entry for Jolene's Lovin Language Blogfest






The rules:


"Pick any five lines (yes, it can be a few short lines that roll together. That's okay, and is probably what I'll do) from one of your WIPs. If you're feeling shy, and don't want to share from your own work, share from something you LOVE."

This is from my flash fiction piece to be published in 2012 called "The Game"


"There to the right I saw the bill of the hat lying on the ground. Carefully and swiftly, I made my way to the area. The wind noticed and a gust flew in. The hat tipped upright and moved away with each step I took closer. If I didn’t know any better I’d think the wind was on his side"

Very visual. I can imagine the wind purposely flinging the hat away from you.

Oh yeah, that's happened to me before. The wind totally plays with people. Good job at bringing back memories!

Jo Bryant said...

Love it, love it. :)

I sympathize with your character. I've totally had that happen to me before. Nice job personifying the wind.

E. Elle said...

Very cool, Summer! Anyone who can write flash fiction gets bonus admiration from me, so kudos.

I really like that last line :) And it's stormy and windy today so I can relate to this...hehe

Jen said...

Great job!! Love the last line. :)

Kate Larkindale said...

I love personifying things that don't have a personality as such. Beautiful imagery here.

Sarah Nicolas said...

Very nice! In five sentences, you made even the wind into an active character.

Brenda Drake said...

Okay, I just love your writing. You never disappoint. I could totally picture the entire scene in five sentences. Excellent! :D

Misha said...

Ooh... that has me very curious. :-)

Theresa Milstein said...

I love the last line!

Jules said...

What a few lines! And the wind is on no one's side, it just has a great sense of humor. :)

Hope all is well my fairy friend, twinkle dust!!!
