Here is my card for the Disability Bingo Fest, in honor of March being Disability Awareness Month.  This fest will run from March 1st through March 31.  It focuses on the role of handicaps in storytelling.  (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.

When I saw "Disability Bingo Card," my immediate thought was of all the satirical bingo cards Disabled people keep in their heads, to help wring some black humor out of our daily interactions with the normate population.

Like this one, and this.

Nearsightedness as an invisible handicap

This may be a bit too common to interest you but I thought I'd mention it.
Nearsightedness isn't even thought of as a disability now that glasses/contact lenses are readily available. This was not the case before glasses became available (mid-1800's?). Before then, many extremely near-sighted people found themselves benched whenever their eyes changed at age 40 and the world around them became a blur.
Perhaps something with a steampunk theme to it? I can only imagine what glasses could do for someone who's had to live like they were blind...

I've seen just a few instances of that in speculative fiction.

I actually have a character whose vision is so bad he's legally blind, but Rai can see blurs and colors. He paints. And he does that with his nose about an inch from the canvas, because at point-blank range he sees rather better. The result is kind of Impressionist, because he paints the world as he sees it, broad swaths of color; but it's quite pretty.

Next fishbowl theme is "small yet significant acts of courage" so this would fit.
