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

Five Sentence Friday

On most Fridays, I post my five favorite sentences of what I'm working on. This weeks five sentences are-
Taken from my novel- The Jade Coterie- Chapter 3

"She froze, her heart raced in her ears. She backed away until she hit the night table. A sweat broke out on her forehead. The object so awful Ebony just stared at it, hoping it would vanish. A mechanical monster with one sharp fang protruding from a long slender mouth."

Put your five favorite lines from one of your pieces in the comments.
