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.

The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now live with a theme of "Sufficient or Indulgent."   Come give us prompts, or take some for your own inspiration.  


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.

This is my card for the Pride Bingo Fest. Since June is LGBTQIA+ pride month, the theme for this month's fest is Pride!  It runs June 1-30.  (See all my 2017 bingo cards.)

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.

The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now live with a theme of "twists."  Come give us prompts, or claim some for your own inspiration.


What I Have Written

"Twisted Wind" is today's freebie.


Inspired by My Prompts

[personal profile] alexseanchai has posted "The Spiral of Life" about small acts of kindness.

Also from [personal profile] alexseanchai 
Your poem inspired "Beacon", a sequel poem of sorts, about picking up after the tornado: 25 lines. Sponsor it for public view for $20, or become a patron of my Patreon and view it there (it is not yet posted) for as little as $1 per poem.

[personal profile] thesilentpoet has created this:
Belated inspiration!

Your image prompt of 'Twisted Tree' inspired a brief character sketch, set in the Urban Fantasy novel featured on my Patreon. For those, who may have followed me before my disappearance, some characters and setting may be recognized.

Character Sketch.

Teaser line: "Beside her sits her phone, her purse, her shoes... It is out of character."
