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

Friday Fun: New blog and Deuce

Happy Friday Friends! Lets get to the short and dirty of it shall we? 

First up, I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year. You can find me HERE
I plan to use this November to start the sequel to my novel Bloodstone (old title was the Jade Coterie)

My Daughter, Jasmyne 11yrs, has started her own blog called Cheetah's Imagination and she is doing the young writers version of NaNoWriMo for the first time this year and plans to blog about her experience. She is my writerly child, takes after mom. :) Please welcome her to the community.
***Since she wants to start reading my blog, I have removed the stud/studess part of my Friday posts. ***

Every Friday I post places you can submit your work on my facebook page- Come on over from 8am- 11am.

My WIP Bloodstone is currently out to 2 beta readers and I'm waiting to hear back on the results.

Something exciting happened this week- I found a puppy at the local dogpound and decided to get him. He is a Mastiff mutt mix, huge paws. Here's a picture of our new member of the family- His name is Deuce.

Are you participating in NaNo this year?
How is your writing coming along?

Happy Friday!

That's so cool your daughter is participating in the YWP! Good luck to her!!

Deuce is a sweetie. My sister-in-law has an English Mastiff named Lily. Humungo! She's a teddy bear, though.

Good luck with NaNo. I wish I were participating, but I'm trying to finish my current WIP draft and don't have time to plan the next project. Plus I'm still doing research for it.

The puppy is adorable! :)

I'm definitely doing NaNoWriMo this year. Not sure what idea I'll be working on (for sure) but, oddly, I'm not really worried.

Elise Fallson said...

Lots of folks doing NaNo, I'm so in awe, good luck to the both of you! And Welcome Jasmyne to the blogging community!! (: Too bad about the hotties, but Deuce is so darn cute that I think I'll survive. (; And good luck with your wip, love the title.
