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

From the Depths...

I come back to you from the depths of a college stampede. For that is all we are, students running forward, all of us searching for the correct direction, yet none of us watching which way we are headed.


I’d like to think I’m different. That somehow I have it all planned and that makes it better. In truth, plans never work out quite how you intended. Instead, I settle for surviving another semester that I believe will lead me into a better way of life. But English my dears…is just another play on words.


In store for tomorrow, as my Christmas break from classes begins, I will write to you from the lands inspiration. My goal is to complete new adventures to submit to anthologies and magazines for 2012.


Currently I have fulfilled my 2011 New Years resolution with 20 rejections (not on the same piece) and will be creating my collage and taking pictures to show you all.


This last November I had another flash fiction piece " The Game" accepted for publication and is now in print. If you do buy the anthology I hope you will consider giving a review. Until tomorrow...
