The January 2015 Crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  [personal profile] dialecticdreamer plans to write a fill for each prompter.  Come give us prompts, or watch to see cool things appearing!

What I Have Written

"Coffee Solves All These Problems" is about making a place for homeless veterans.

From this I got the free-verse poem "Windsight." A young Heliodrax named Merle makes lir First Flight.
42 lines, Buy It Now = $20

From this I got the free-verse poem "Dying by Fire." Nakahara remembers killing someone with her fire magic.
18 lines, Buy It Now = $10

Your prompt about stealing dreams inspired the free-verse poem "The Thief of Tomorrowmorrow." Timmy faces a stern principal and a beautiful, mysterious box.
198 lines, Buy It Now = $99

Timmy tiptoed into the principal's office.
Mr. Brown was on the phone, and
Timmy was trying to be quiet,
so as not to get into any more trouble
than he was already in.

When Mr. Brown pointed,
Timmy sat in a chair.
He was only in first grade,
so his feet did not reach the floor.
He kicked his heels against
the chair leg -- tap, tap, tap

This inspired the free-verse poem "Strange Aeons." When languages dream, some of those dreams are nightmares.
51 lines, Buy It Now = $20

Your waking prompts inspired the poem "Silken Dreams," written in unrhymed quatrains. A farming couple decide to take in a soldier, whenever one wakes from his enchanted sleep in the dragon's care. (This poem belongs to the series Dragonsilk.) 100 lines, 25 verses, Buy It Now = $50

The year after the soldiers
save their farm from raiders,
Mirala and her husband Yonal
go to see the dragon.

Mirala wrings her hands
as she explains why
they want to host a soldier,
whenever one hatches out.

From My Prompts

"The Oneiromancer's Manual" by [personal profile] alexseanchai is October Daye fanfic about a girl with dream powers trying to learn how they work.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer posted the first snippet of what will become a story about Aidan and the social worker Heidi.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer also said, "Your prompt for Schrodinger's Heroes led to the story "Alarm Bells." To be posted after "Salvaging" is complete."

"How to Carry Something Between Dreaming and Waking" by [personal profile] chordatesrock is a sonnet variant about manifesting your dreams.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has added, "I combined your visual prompt with another from LJ to create the story "Morning Routine." Will be posted SOON!"

More Awesomeness

[personal profile] brides_koneko wrote "Mixed Messages" about dreaming big.

[personal profile] chordatesrock did another sonnet variation about languages waking from sleep.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written "Do Languages Dream?" about natural and invented languages moving through the dreams of humans.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer excels at worldbuilding and characterization. For a setting you can play in, see Heliodrax, about shapeshifting scholarly dragons. She also writes in several of my settings. Demifiction is stuff borrowed directly from another world: newspaper or magazine articles, pop songs, restaurant menus, etc. (Seriously, I am now disappointed every time I see a Tastee Freeze sign and the second word is not "Shack.") I just love the depth, diversity, and sensitivity of [personal profile] dialecticdreamer's work.

Silverlace_Vine over on AO3 has a particular knack for writing relationships. My favorite is the Perspective series, which is Tony Stark/Bruce Banner/Steve Rogers ... with a demisexual Steve, which I think really fits him well. The slow build is very gratifying.

Morgana on Noire Sensus specializes in hurt/comfort and slash. She just does an amazing job with Tolkien's elves, capturing their culture and personality with great precision. She also shares my taste for the "ratchet" effect that makes Tolkien such a grandmaster of the hurt/comfort genre, making it possible to crank the tension much higher without wearing out either the characters or the readers. "A Mortal Love" and "Dinîf en Qualen" are favorites.

In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm a writer.  I write original and fannish things.  I also make whole new worlds.  Some of those, like Schrodinger's Heroes, are explicitly intended for other people to play in.

I'm an editor.  I give feedback on friends' work.  I enjoy helping folks improve their writing.

I'm a reviewer.  I recommend cool things so more people can appreciate them.

I'm a scholar.  This helps me spot patterns, some of which are very useful, like describing the developmental arc of identity literature.  Also it's gotten me into putting reference links after my writing, so if I bring up a difficult topic, you're not left holding the bag, there are resources for dealing with it.

I'm an activist.  I use literature to show people what is possible.  Pretty much anything that is an idea or practice rather than an object or power can feasibly be transported from one universe to another.  So I look for things that can make the world a better place and bring them here.  Other times I point out the flaws in what people are doing here.  I fill in gaps where some people are not represented, or are portrayed negatively.

I am a bard by talent, vocation, and profession.  This is what I am; this is what I do.

In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Talk about a talent you discovered you have. Finding folks who are geekier than you, or on the flip side, finding out that there is no one geekier than you. A person who changed your life. The possibilities are endless. Big or small, what unexpected surprises have you found?

The first thing that comes to mind is disappointment.  When I first got involved in fandom, it was dramatically different from mundania, a precious refuge from a lot of the nonsense that makes me dislike most gatherings.  This has sadly diminished over time.  Frex, the rise of the term "cosplay" concurrent with bothering people who are in costume, which used to be just the kind of dressing up that lots of folks did at a con and nobody made an issue about.  I've seen fandom become less welcoming and open-minded, more hostile, and less adept at solving problems.  I miss that camaraderie, that glimpse of a better world.  There are still things I love about fandom, but these days more of them are online than in person.

On the other hoof, I've discovered some cool new things over time.  The whole enemies-to-lovers thing took a while to develop into the major force that it is today.  It's a favorite dynamic, so I'm really glad for that.

I never would've expected the rise of hobby-editing as such a prevailing force either.  What started as the first-readers that many writers had privately has grown into a very public pool of beta-readers, which is to say, people who edit friends' stories for fun.  Or even strangers' stories, some of them.  Since the big publishing houses are nearly moribund, I'm happy to see a thriving supply of effective editors who can handle contemporary literature, whether purely fanfic or the original material that often results from fanwriters expanding their activities.

Some very dear friends have come through fandom, or share fannish interests with me.  [personal profile] janetmiles[personal profile] haikujaguar[personal profile] ellenmillion[personal profile] k_a_webb, and [personal profile] dialecticdreamer leap readily to mind.  I'm grateful for those connections.

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

My favorite plot structure is Hurt/Comfort, dating all the way back to when my mother read me The Hobbit when I was four. Tolkien is the grandmaster of H/C. It looks like Plot Shape #2. The key to this dynamic is that the comfort part of the cycle allows you to crank the hurt part much higher, without burning out either the character or the audience. (This is one reason why the recent movies break down, Jackson has no grasp of that infrastructure and without it, kerblooey.) So if you look at my writing, a majority of it is H/C. Some is fluff and there are a few much darker items, but usually I want that rocker effect.

The Poetry Fishbowl is now CLOSED for prompts.  New poem thumbnails may still appear for a few days.  Thank you for your support and enthusiasm.

Starting now, the Poetry Fishbowl is open!  Today's theme is "earn your happy ending."  I will be checking this page periodically throughout the day. When people make suggestions, I'll pick some and weave them together into a poem ... and then another ... and so on. I'm hoping to get a lot of ideas and a lot of poems.

Click to read the linkback poem "Unfamiliar Feelings" (One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis, 22 verses available).

What Is a Poetry Fishbowl?

Writing is usually considered a solitary pursuit. One exception to this is a fascinating exercise called a "fishbowl." This has various forms, but all of them basically involve some kind of writing in public, usually with interaction between author and audience. A famous example is Harlan Ellison's series of "stories under glass" in which he sits in a bookstore window and writes a new story based on an idea that someone gives him. Writing classes sometimes include a version where students watch each other write, often with students calling out suggestions which are chalked up on the blackboard for those writing to use as inspiration.

In this online version of a Poetry Fishbowl, I begin by setting a theme; today's theme is "earn your happy ending."  I invite people to suggest characters, settings, and other things relating to that theme. Then I use those prompts as inspiration for writing poems.

Cyberfunded Creativity

I'm practicing cyberfunded creativity. If you enjoy what I'm doing and want to see more of it, please feed the Bard. The following options are currently available:

1) Sponsor the Fishbowl -- Here is a PayPal button for donations. There is no specific requirement, but $1 is the minimum recommended size for PayPal transactions since they take a cut from every one. You can also donate via check or money order sent by postal mail. If you make a donation and tell me about it, I promise to use one of your prompts. Anonymous donations are perfectly welcome, just won't get that perk. General donations will be tallied, and at the end of the fishbowl I’ll post a list of eligible poems based on the total funding; then the audience can vote on which they want to see posted.

2) Swim, Fishie, Swim! -- A feature in conjunction with fishbowl sponsorship is this progress meter showing the amount donated.  There are multiple perks, the top one being a half-price poetry sale on one series when donations reach $300.

3) Buy It Now! -- Gakked from various e-auction sites, this feature allows you to sponsor a specific poem. If you don't want to wait for some editor to buy and publish my poem so you can read it, well, now you don't have to. Sponsoring a poem means that I will immediately post it on my blog for everyone to see, with the name of the sponsor (or another dedicate) if you wish; plus you get a nonexclusive publication right, so you can post it on your own blog or elsewhere as long as you keep the credits intact. You'll need to tell me the title of the poem you want to sponsor. I'm basing the prices on length, and they're comparable to what I typically make selling poetry to magazines (semi-pro rates according to Duotrope's Digest).

0-10 lines: $5
11-25 lines: $10
26-40 lines: $15
41-60 lines: $20
Poems over 60 lines, or with very intricate structure, fall into custom pricing.

4) Commission a scrapbook page. I can render a chosen poem in hardcopy format, on colorful paper, using archival materials for background and any embellishments. This will be suitable for framing or for adding to a scrapbook. Commission details are here.  See latest photos of sample scrapbooked poems: "Sample Scrapbooked Poems 1-24-11"

5) Spread the word. Echo or link to this post on your LiveJournal, other blog, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Digg, StumbleUpon, or any other social network.  Useful Twitter hashtags include #poetryfishbowl and #promptcall.  Encourage people to come here and participate in the fishbowl.  If you have room for it, including your own prompt will give your readers an idea of what the prompts should look like; ideally, update later to include the thumbnail of the poem I write, and a link to the poem if it gets published.  If there is at least one new prompter or donor, I will post an extra freebie poem.

Linkback perk: I have a spare series poem available, and each linkback will reveal a verse of the poem.  One person can do multiple links if they're on different services, like Dreamwidth or Twitter, rather than all on LiveJournal.  Comment with a link to where you posted. "Unfamiliar Feelings" belongs to One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis and has 22 verses available. 

Additional Notes

1) I customarily post replies to prompt posts telling people which of their prompts I'm using, with a brief description of the resulting poem(s). If you want to know what's available, watch for those "thumbnails."

2) You don't have to pay me to see a poem based on a prompt that you gave me. I try to send copies of poems to people, mostly using the LJ message function.  (Anonymous prompters will miss this perk unless you give me your eddress.)  These are for-your-eyes-only, though, not for sharing.

3) Sponsors of the Poetry Fishbowl in general, or of specific poems, will gain access to an extra post in appreciation of their generosity.  While you're on the Donors list, you can view all of the custom-locked posts in that category.  Click the "donors" tag to read the archive of those.  I've also posted a list of other donor perks there.  I customarily leave donor names on the list for two months, so you'll get to see the perk-post from this month and next.

4) After the Poetry Fishbowl concludes, I will post a list of unsold poems and their prices, to make it easier for folks to see what they might want to sponsor.

5) If donations total $100 by Friday evening then you get a free $15 poem; $150 gets you a free $20 poem; and $200 gets you a free epic, posted after the Poetry Fishbowl.  These will usually be series poems if I have them; otherwise I may offer non-series poems or series poems in a different size.  If donations reach $250, you get one step toward a bonus fishbowl; three of these activates the perk, and they don't have to be three months in a row.  Everyone will get to vote on which series, and give prompts during the extra fishbowl, although it may be a half-day rather than a whole day.  If donations reach $300, there will be a half-price sale in one series.

Feed the Fish!
Now's your chance to participate in the creative process by posting ideas for me to write about. Today's theme is "earn your happy ending."  I'll be soliciting ideas for heroes, villains, horrible relatives, innocent bystanders, daunting aliens, antagonists that are not persons, accepting the call to adventure, refusing the call, proving yourself, heroic feats, epic failures, dungeons, doom planets, creepy buildings, graveyeards, hovels, shipwrecks or other ruins, situations where the deck is stacked, legendary weapons, endings and beginnings, mementos, love polygons, the nature of happiness, flaws that impede happiness, and poetic forms in particular. But anything is welcome, really. If you manage to recommend a form that I don't recognize, I will probably pounce on it and ask you for its rules. I do have the first edition of Lewis Turco's The Book of Forms which covers most common and many obscure forms.

I'll post at least one of the fishbowl poems here so you-all can enjoy it. (Remember, you get an extra freebie poem if someone new posts a prompt or makes a donation, and additional perks at $100-$300 in donations.  Linkbacks reveal verses of "Unfamiliar Feelings.") The rest of the poems will go into my archive for magazine submission.

This poem was inspired by the "de-aged" square in my 1-3-15 card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest and the Day 6 challenge for [community profile] snowflake_challenge. It belongs to the series Love Is For Children. The mind jars were suggested by Ducky.

There's not actually all that much to tell.  I grew up with it -- my mother read me The Hobbit when I was four -- although I didn't get into conventions until high school.

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment
ysabetwordsmith: Cartoon of me in Wordsmith persona (Default)
Below is my card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest. This fest features fundamental motifs that will be familiar to most readers. It encourages writers to analyze storylines and characters, then reinterpret them in new ways. It is open to all fandoms and to original work; and open to fiction, poetry, art, and all other media. Read the rules. See the list of tropes. Request a card of your own. Signups will be open until April 15 for first cards, and until April 30 for second cards. Bingo postings may be made January 15-April 30 and amnesty begins on May 1. All fanworks and original works are allowed, including poetry; poems can be any size, while fiction should be 500+ words. (See all my bingo cards for 2015.)

I'm hoping to attract some new readers through this fest. People are starting to show interest in specific prompts. If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out. I may still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it. That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl. Any other ideas for monetizing this? Let me know.

In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

* I'm unusual in working from the center out.  I start with an idea or a form, and build from there; rather than working from the surface in, as most people seem to do.  If I see a surface that I like, my response is to take it apart looking for the infrastructure.  (See the Six Steps from Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics.)

* For fanfic in particular, I use the method "derive in, extrapolate out."  I pick something in canon that like, imagine how it might have gotten that way, and then ask what kind of new stories that might inspire.

* I have an infinite supply of ideas.  I do not get writer's block.  The only time my inspiration doesn't engage is when I feel too crappy or exhausted to focus on anything.

* However, I still love getting ideas from other people, and these days it's a major drive for what I'm doing.  I love bingo cards; drop by [community profile] allbingo and you can get one anytime.  I also do prompts calls, including the Poetry Fishbowl and Creative Jam.
