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

K- Kim Harrison's view on Inspiration

My inspiration in writing has come from a terrific author- Kim Harrison. 
She writes the Hollow series with her leading lady Rachel Morgan. 

Ms. Harrison was kind enough to answer two questions for me- 

1)What is your favorite word?

  I don’t really have one. Sorry. But my favorite word type is the word that doesn’t get used much, maybe once every two books or so, one that fits the situation to a T and seldom gets used in casual conversation, the one that I look at and sarcastically say to myself, “Oooh, I get to use my big words today!”

2) What does inspiration mean to you?

Inspiration to me is the drive to find out what happens next, so unless I’m having a very bad day, it’s always with me.

I'm inspired to do something great the moment I open my eyes. Unless I'm inspired to go back to sleep.

Hi, my friend. I consider myself a wordsmith, because I love and have always loved words. I get lost in them when I am reading. The world could be exploding around me and I wouldn't be aware of it, if I were immersed in a good story. Writing is also a love of mine. Best regards to you, Ruby

Getting to the end of the book, movie, trip, etc. In other words getting to the end so I can start something new.
