ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
[personal profile] fuzzyred and I have been working to update the Shiv thread page.  So far, all the previously listed published poems now have links.  Entries have been created and proofread, waiting to be uploaded on the thread page, for poems that will get placed between previously listed poems.  After that's done, we'll move on to entries that will appear after the last poem currently on thread page.  I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Due to rising waters, floods that used to occur once a century will likely occur once a year or more.  That's about 100 times worse than it used to be on the basis of frequency.  While severity is important too, frequency is a big determiner in people's ability to recover from setbacks.  If they haven't recovered before the next one hits, they take more damage, which tends to be unsustainable.

The first batch of new entries have been uploaded to the Shiv thread page.  These weave between previously posted entries. 

A fresh batch of entries has been placed on the sample page for me to proofread.

Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] zianuray, there are 9 new verses in "So Many Notes and Colors and Flavors."   Heron and Shiv discuss the possibilities of cookies and other creative endeavors.

This poem only needs $6 to be complete.

This week there is a half-price sale in Shiv. It runs through Sunday.

The [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend. I wrote two poems. Someone else has a piece in progress based on one of my prompts.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

"So Many Notes and Colors and Flavors" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and has 57 new verses. Heron and Shiv talk about the creative aspects of cooking.  This only needs $6 to be complete.  Now complete!

Weather here has been milder.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a large flock of mourning doves, a small flock of dark-eyed juncos, a pair of cardinals, a male downy woodpecker, a rabbit, and three squirrels. The house finches have emptied the thistle feeder; I refilled it today.  :D
