The January [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now live on Dreamwidth and LiveJournal.  Our theme this month is "laughter." Come give us prompts or claim some for your own inspiration!


What I Have Written

"The Earth Laughs" -- A grieving Demeter finds laughter and life again.


From My Prompts

[personal profile] alexseanchai wrote the lovely story "The Silent Laughter of Her Hands," about an autistic girl interacting with other students.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted some new stories.

This "pending" story shows what happens when Charles gets sick with only his son Samuel in the house, and gets a taste of Maldivian social support.

"Learning to Relax" features Cash with a couple other folks in Mercedes, and a beautiful example of upstanding.

I posted "Beyond Their Failures" on Dreamwidth but it failed to echo.  Dvorak runs rings around Qwerty, Blue Law and Qwerty have a deep ethical discussion about what is and is not okay in handling supervillains, and then Dvorak runs even more rings around the Primaries.

This poem is spillover from the January 3, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] lone_cat.  It also fills the "captive" square in my 1-1-17 card for the Dark Fantasy Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the Antimatter & Stalwart Stan thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

This microfunded poem is being posted one verse at a time, as donations come in to cover them.  The rate is $.50/line, so $5 will reveal 10 new lines, and so forth. There is a permanent donation button on my profile page, or you can contact me for other arrangements. You can also ask me about the number of lines per verse, if you want to fund a certain number of verses.

The poem "So Much Worse in Its Consequences" is open for microfunding.  Hefty watches Cho-Cho Glow's life implode due to poor choices, and tries to buffer the worst of the effects.

* I recommended [community profile] allbingo to several folks seeking fan-friendly communities to join or read.

* I found some house icons for someone seeking those.

* I've been helping a friend with a family emergency.  As part of this, I assembled a list of self-care and related support materials.  This is useful to anyone in a stressful situation.


For extra credit: I invite my readers to go out and also commit a random act of kindness, then post below about what you did.
