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

The pieces felt cold, dead in her hand

My title is a sentence taken from my current WIP ~Bloodstone~ I have been revising my little fairy heart out and am almost done with this round. I have five chapters left.

I did something crazy! I signed up for the A-Z challenge. I know I've only been posting here and there- but what better way to get myself back involved in the blogging than to do a challenge where I need to write a post every single day?

And in this writers household we learned two very important things:

1) Manly men can fall in love with puppies too (a mini Australian Shepard to be exact)

2) My lap is now the new hangout zone for the cat to lay in, Otto (the new puppy) to jump in, Deuce to sit on, and Hemi (the oldest dog) to stand on. It's a right popular place with the animals.

As usual if you go to my facebook page here on the left of the screen you will find that every Friday morning I post places you can submit your work. Feel free to take a gander.

Are you taking the A-Z challenge?
What's the most popular place in your writer house?
How is your current WIP coming along?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ~

Definitely love me some puppies, too. :-)

Best of luck with A-Z! We'll be knee-deep in the process of moving in April, so I'm not going to try it this year. (It's a challenge even when I do have the time. :)

Unfortunately my lap is where hobos like to hang out. I hit them with a newspaper but they always come back.

Hi Summer

You go girl! You're almost at the end of this round of revisions!

I signed up for the A-Z even though there'll be foolish amounts of extra work!

Hi Summer - I'm sure fairies can write short A - Z posts for you ..

Love the way animals adapt .. and so pleased all in the house are mixing happily - manly man too!!

Yes - I'm A - Zing .. I'll sign up in a few days - thought I'd be a little down the list ..

Best place - my bed!!!!

You have a fun weekend .. cheers Hilary

Animals, especially cats, love laptops. I guess it's because of how warm they get! Plus animals like to remind their owners to give them all their attention, LoL.

I signed up for A-Z, too! It goes a lot easier if you start planning and writing your posts now. Good luck!!

Aw! We don't have any pets right now. But I used to love when my cat would curl up in my lap. Loved it! ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad you're on board for the Challenge!
Most popular place? The bed. For many reasons.

Old Kitty said...

Awwww Otto, kitty, Deuce and Hemi sound utterly adorable! Yay!

For my kitties, the keyboard and desk chairs are theirs!

Good luck with your A-Zing!!! Take care

M Pax said...

I've seen you busy at revisioning on FB. Yay for you!

I did sign up for AtoZ. I even have A-J loaded.

Cherie Reich said...

Good luck with the revisions! You're almost there. :) Glad to hear you're taking part in A-Z.

Christine Rains said...

Awww, that's so sweet. I miss having a cat to curl up on my lap. A squirmy, bony toddler isn't the same! I signed up for the challenge too. I did it last year, but I'm worried I might be strapped for time this year. Yikes! Have a good weekend. :)

Hey Summer,

until today I didn't know you had a blog. You must shout these things out. Anyway, I promise to visit much more now that I know.

And on another note, who doesn't love puppies or even dogs for that matter. I know I'd have my own pack if I had the room.


Carol Kilgore said...

The most popular place here is the area around my desk followed by the family/pack room. I'm doing the A-Z, too.

LTM said...

it's possible there's nothing cuter than a manly man falling in love w/a puppy! :D

And WOW! I LOVE that line from your WIP! Good luck w/revisions~ <3

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
