I've been creative writing all my life, though with various haitus(es) along the way. IFrom 2010 I started this blog and enjoyed sharing writing and other information with everyone. illness and bereavement supplied the more recent hiatus.

New Creation Blogfest

                                 Summer Ross' NEW CREATION BLOGFEST

Rules : Choose one sentence from your favourite last line from a story you wrote last year and one brand new sentence to start something new.

'Only the pale skin of her face might give her away'.

(Taken from a YA novel I began last year)

'Janise felt every bit the tortoise trying to walk upright with its shell strapped to its back'.

(Taken from a short story I'm gonna finish writing sometime this month or maybe next)

Belated Happy Birthday Wishes to Summer


  1. Yay!!

    Great sentences - the first one feels sad because your mc is all pale and trying not to be!

    The second one has a great imagery - poor burdened Janise!!! Lovely! Take care

  2. First sentence. Vampire? I'm wondering...

  3. Stopping by for the blogfest! Your opening sentence could be a marvelous metaphor (which is what I am hoping!!!!)

  4. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and participating. I love your lines. the new one gives so much potential. happy writing.

  5. Hmm! I'm curious. I want to know why the character is burdened! :)

  6. The first sentence makes me wonder why she's pale--the second intrigues me because the character's obviously carrying something around!

  7. It's interesting how sentences out of context can completely mislead the reader.

    Well no in the first she's not a vampire. She's hiding from someone.

    Yes Janise is carrying something around physically as well as possibly metaphorically.
    Glad you enjoyed my snippets :O)

  8. Made me think of poor old Christian in The Pilgrim's Progress! An intriguing start. :)

  9. Interesting. I'm wondering who 'she's trying to fit in among without being given away, in the ending - and it doesn't sound like an definitive end while there's still uncertainty there. But lots of stories still have uncertainties, I guess. I know that mine do. (That's why there's sequels.)

    And the beginning is just a great sentence. I'm not sure what's making Janise feel that way, but I love the mental picture from the simile! (The tortoise is a bit cartoon-like, in my head.)

    Thanks for taking part in this blogfest. I signed up late, but I'd love to know what you think of my sentences!
