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

Writers Support group post

If you are looking for the awards you can find them here

Today is the Second Writers Support Group Post hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh 

I don't have much to really worry about at the moment other than homework so I'm making a supportive post instead.


"Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."  ~Les Brown


I believe in you and truly know you can do anything you put your mind to.

You are strong enough to handle whatever a rejection letter holds.


You have worked so hard to revise your piece, to create it out of a blank page, you worried over it, you laughed about it, you were excited by the lovely bits you included, and felt like crying when a scene didn't come together right. But you Created- you put the pen to paper or the fingers to keyboard and wrote. I am proud of you for just doing that. For just being the writer that you are. Be proud of yourself for how far you have come. You deserve to believe in what you can do and who you are.

I love that quote! It is something I am really working on. Setting goals but being okay when I don't meet them. Life is full of twists and turns - and you have to be adaptable. The planner in me does not like that. But I am learning.

Beautiful quote, and a lovely positive post!

Michelle said...

What an uplifting post. I think authors look at their work as their babies, I know I do, and it is so hard to let go of our baby and subject it to the cold harsh world.

Love the quote, too.
