The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open with a theme of "black swans."


What I Have Written

"Black Swan Lake" is the freebie.

From this I got the free-verse poem "Revisitation." Shaeth hears a prayer from a long-time follower, and this time decides to answer it.

From My Prompts 

[personal profile] alatefeline  has written the poem "I Don't See Black Swans" about compensation and decompensation.
ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
 You can now read "QRM" by [personal profile] chanter_greenie.  I sponsored this to share some glimpses of people in a safehouse, fighting back against a repressive government.

The Magpie Monday on "stumbling blocks" got off to a late start yesterday, so it's still open today.  If you missed it earlier, go leave some prompts now, and get ficlets.
ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
[personal profile] chanter_greenie is holding a half-price sale for the Orange!verse stories in Schrodinger's Heroes, along with a few other items.  Prices range from $5.25 to $23, and the sale runs through September 19.  There is a PayPal button on the profile page.  It would be really great to see more of these posted.  Some are dark, others lighter, but they're all good examples of how people right against an oppressive culture.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has Magpie Monday running with a theme of "stumbling blocks."  Developments of ongoing storylines are encouraged, but new ones are welcome too.  Boost the signal and get more words in your ficlet.  There is a button for donations.

[personal profile] aldersprig is holding a Giraffe Call -- actually more of a zebra call, as the goal is financing the renovation of a black-white-gray bathroom.  Leave prompts, get ficlets.  Send money, support a writer, because everyone deserves to live in a nice place.

This is my card for the Pirate Fest Bingo. Since September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day, the theme for this month's fest is piracy!  It runs September 1-30.  (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

For further inspiration:

Kraken is a supervillain organization in Polychrome Heroics.  Their secret subsidiaries include Triton Teen Centers and X Marks the Spot (GPS equipment including locative jewelry).  Capricorn is one of their leaders.

Others in Polychrome Heroics: I have a character who shapeshifts into a Narwhal; she's part of the Hand of Sedna.  Gráinne Nuala is an immortal pirate queen.  The Devil Whale is one of Steel's nicknames.  Compass rose is one of several popular designs used to mark a teleport landing pad.

Act of Pardon is one of the things that will happen in the Maldives after Kraken reveals themselves in Contingency X.  The President offers amnesty to people who want to stop being supervillains and find something more constructive and legal to do.

The Inkseer uses kraken ink for powerful scrying.

The Ocracies include a variety of coastal and seafaring cultures.

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've had a few requests for this and the results have been awesome so far.  This is a good opportunity for those of you with favorites that don't always mesh well with the themes of my monthly projects. 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.


Underlined prompts have been filled.

COME PLAY @ THE [ FIC POSITIVITY FEEDBACK MEME ]
my thread here


I'm hoping that some of the fanwriters I read will post on the meme. So far they're all folks I don't recall reading.

Michael Bond has passed away.  He created the famous Paddington Bear.  :(  While it wasn't my favorite childhood series, I did read some Paddington and I'm familiar with the character.

 [personal profile] bairnsidhe has been writing a setting called Super-Queers.  Check out "Questions" and "Under the Hood."  If you like Polychrome Heroics, you'll probably love this.

What I Have Written

"Goldilocks and the Three Planets" is this session's freebie.

A prompt about rich folks inspired the free-verse poem "The Things That Money Can't Buy." Scrunch is a supervillain who can make trouble and throw money around, but not even he can buy everything he wants.
