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

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?

Well happy early birthday! And those are some great goals. Good luck with them! Glad you're so loving your book. And I believe to end the tuesday turning into monday cycle, we just need to do away with work altogether. It's so simple! ;)
