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

One thing every day

"Do one thing everyday towards your goal." ~ William Downs 

In my Wyoming writers class at the college, I met Mr. Downs. He is a brilliant playwright who also teaches at the University of Wyoming. When asked what he might tell others, he gave the entire class the quote above and I listened. 

I have done three things in the last two weeks in the step towards my writing. 

1) I made myself an author page on facebook. (click and like if you want)
2) I added a holiday story section and revised my author website. (let me know if you notice any mistakes)
3) write more 
I currently have a character in my head that I fully intend to explore more this coming weekend and some great ideas on what her main goals will be. I'm actually excited to start writing her!

What did you do this week toward your own goals? (I really do want to know.)

Happy writing- See you Monday!

Great advice, Summer. Thanks for sharing. Although I don't have a facebook account, it's coming. I'll take a look at yours when I'm done here.

I spent most of the week reading my work-in-progress. I lost a bunch of edited data when my computer crashed (posted on this the other day, won't repeat here), so I've been scrambling to recover from that.

Best of luck with your brainstorming. Hope you come up with a great idea for a novel.

Does writing articles and blog posts count? It's part of promoting my writing...

It wasn't writing. I fixed our electric gate opener which I think wanted to go on vacation. I'm sure though I could make a story up about it. :)

Some great steps, Summer.

I found momentum again on my two WIPs. Now it stops for weekend stuff. But, I have a clear road map of what I'm doing now, so that should help me finish them both up. I hope soon.

I'll go like your page. I have a page, too.

Excellent advice! And congrats to you for moving forward. November and December are awful months for me writing-wise. I'm full up with birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. My writing consists mainly of blogging and commenting until January.
