I've done a lot of work on my website in the past week. I've changed some of the tabs and organization
. Check out the new section for The Silk Road Allies
, a shared world project in which China and Italy make friends.Poetry in Microfunding:
"An Amazing Carriage of Amber and Jade
" belongs to the Steamsmith series. Maryam experiments with combining two important alchemical materials. No new verses, but a general fund donation did reduce the amount needed to reveal the next verse. "The Lost and Found Legion
" belongs to The Silk Road Allies
. It is being funded in installments by marina_bonomi
, and describes how China and Italy came to form an alliance. "A Hole in the Blanket
" opened and closed within the week; it tells of an African warrior whose brother gets abducted by demons.Torn World writing update:

We've had a slight break in the heat here, but only a few drops of rain. Everything is still shriveled. On the slightly less sweltering days, the birds go back to ignoring the water that I put out.
