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

Today is only the beginning. Despite the hardships of being a single mom, college student, and volunteer at two separate jobs, I graduate May 10th with my BA in English. I also managed to write an entire novel, but I'll tell you about that in another post.

I'm not fully back- but I'm close. I wanted to give a brief update, let you all know that I'm still around and writing.

I also want to thank all of you for sticking with me- despite my long absent.

The plan:

I missed you all so much, I'll be back as soon as I complete my last final for classes. I'll be posting and trying to catch up on what I've missed.

I am taking on the challenge of writing a short story every day in May.

Over the summer I will begin my extensive revision on my new novel.

With that said I leave you to your day. I'm looking forward to being back full time.
