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

Watching Willow Blogfest- If I could be anyone...

Talli Roland is hosting the 'If I could be anyone Blogfest' for her debut novel Watching Willow.

The rules:
"Well, on September 14th, I'm organizing an online 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' party! Come dressed as that one person you've always admired, longed to impersonate, or just plain envied. Now is your chance to make your superhero, film-star, or Rock God fantasies come true (okay, maybe not all your fantasies...).

If you have a blog and you'd like to take part, all you need to do is post a photo of your chosen one (dead or alive) along with an explanation why you've picked that person. If you're on Twitter or Facebook, just post 'If I could be anyone, I'd be X' as your status, along with the hast-tag #watchingwillow on Twitter (or tag me on FB so I know you've taken part)."


Ok- Now for the person I wish I could have been-
Jane Austen
 Why? Because I adore what she represents in fiction.

Best of luck miss Talli with your novel!

I kinda go for Jane Austen, myself although I'd hate to wear those little dust caps they always wore.

Hi Summer... I think I'd choose to be Meryl Streep, because I'd like to experience being someone who is so hugely talented and such a fabulous human being to boot!

Impressed with you being a voluntary slush pile reader. I think you must feel a bit like a pearl fisher, diving into the depths in the hope that you'll come up with the prize :-)

I too love Jane Austin. Great choice Summer.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Summer .. well done on getting your post up - even if the fairy came a little early .. I wonder how many other Jane's there will be?

Old Kitty said...

My post for Talli is all set for tomorrow morning!

Laura Marcella said...

I need to re-read some Jane Austen! I think I might enjoy her novels more now that I'm older.

The Golden Eagle said...

Jane Austen was a very interesting writer . . . great choice!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hi, Summer.

Great Choice! I have something planned for tomorrow's post.

This will be a HOOT!

L'Aussie said...

Hi Summer, had to stop by as Michael told me you were upstaging me lol.

Jenna Cooper said...

Love Jane Austen! People horribly misrepresent her based off what they see in Hollywood. She wrote amazingly deep and psychological work, and took the novel up to the next level. Excellent choice!

Glynis said...

What a talented lady to choose!

My choice is a little more crazy than the demure Miss Austen.

If I couldn't be Cassandra, I would be Jane! Awesome pick.

Morgan said...

Jane Austen is a great choice for a writer-she's so inspiring and her works are fantastic.

Carolyn V said...

Good luck to Talli! I hope her book does fantastic!

Jane Austen's books rock. She is amazing. Great choice.

Stephen Tremp said...

So far Jane Austen is the leader that I've seen. She sure is popular, especially in this day and age when glitz and glamour captivate so many people.

Siv Maria said...

Ahhh, the great novelist Jane Austen, great choice but not sure I could have survived in that time period :)

Rachel Morgan said...

Ooh, this is the second Jane Austen that I've seen! For us writerly folks she's definitely a good choice :-) (Though I've seen a movie about her life and I'm not sure I'd actually want to BE her. Maybe a character in one of her novels, like (no surprise) Elizabeth Bennet!)

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Great choice! These Watching Willow blogfest posts are such fun.

Susan Fields said...

Jane Austen - excellent choice!

Talli Roland said...

Jane Austen rocks! Such talent - I'm envious. Fantastic choice, Summer!

Thanks so much for taking part! I really appreciate it. :) And I'm sorry I'm just coming by now... I flaked out early last night.

Talli Roland said...

Fantastic choice! Talented and beautiful!

Believe it or not, I've never read one of her books.

Pk Hrezo said...

excellent choice, Summer! Jane is in a class all her own. What she did for women writers is astounding!

LTM said...
