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

Interesting links

I have a few sites I came across that I feel would be helpful to others. If you already know of them- Awesome. If you don't- I hope you give them a try and see what happens.
 

Writing Aid 
This is a free site and shows discrepancies within your writing like over used words, cliches, dictation, etc...

Scenes 
This is a very in depth article about Scenes and sequels- I'm still trying to figure out how to do this regularly. It's a great deal of work, but after you try it- you can see how much it improves a piece.


Scribophile
Free writers site with an awesome community. The critiques I have received here are by far some of the best out of all the critique sites I have tried.


Have any awesome sites you have found recently? Feel free to share them in the comments. I'll check them out.

The whole scene/sequel has me stumped because I think I naturally do them without conscious thought. Without sequel, the novel is non stop action. But the sequel (or scene) doesn't have to take place over an entire physical scene. They can be mini scenes within a scene.

Okay, another word other than scene would have been better. Scene seems to mean so many things. :)
