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

An embarking semester

Admittedly, Christmas break ran right through and now I have no more time left as yet another semester embarks it's journey through my life.

Please be patient as I am on Hiatus until the middle of May 2012.

A huge thank you to all my old followers who have stuck with me through this. To any new followers- there is plenty to read, so feel free to rummage through old posts until my return.

Insecure Writers Support Group Post.

I never realized there is an art to insults until I began writing 'The Jade Coterie.' 

My two leading ladies are attempting to have it out with words, only they cannot be vulgar due to lady like situations and contests. 

So, I looked some "elegant" insults up and to my surprise they exist! Of course not often in the 21st century, but Shakespeare and Churchhill had it down to an art form, and one I wish I could learn.

My doubt- that I won't be able to wrap my writers brain around the style it takes in order to accomplish an elegant insult.

If you are looking for some fun though I did come across a Shakespearean insult generator:
Insult Generator 

The insult I enjoyed is : "Thou craven half-faced lout!"

If you check it out please feel free to tell me yours in the comments.

If Monday were Tuesday...

Mondays are always the days when you want just one more day before the weekend is over...of course if we actually had that then Tuesday would be the new Monday and the cycle would start all over anyways.

 I have my books for classes already.My reading list is slightly lower than it has been in past semester with a total of 13 books. Not to shabby for my last semester, at least for a while.

Technically I start on the 9th of January with two classes, and then I start two more on the 17th.

I'm working on Chapter 5 of 'The Jade Coterie' and found some terrific tidbits I'm planning on adding into the story including runes. I read one of my Manly Man's books about runic origin and how the 'magic' works. Surprisingly, it held my interest for the better part of an evening. But hey research is important when faced with things you don't know and writing about them.

 It's the new year, my birthday will come up this week and I'm turning the big 30. I'm not afraid of it really- I think it is an accomplishment. 
My goals: To finish 'The Jade Coterie' and this Summer take time away from everything and just write. Of course I will still be submitting work throughout the year in flash fiction and short story, but my goal will not be so much on publication as it will be on the writing.

Whats your main goal for 2012?
