Torn World has seen a lot of activity this week.  I've had several things approved, plus new writing in progress, and ellenmillion has been working on the main site.  Here are the highlights.

I shot several rounds of photographs after the ice storm and snowfall recently. First I posted samples, then xjenavivex sponsored more to be posted. If you like visual references for art/writing about snow, definitely check these out.

The February Poetry Fishbowl has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 8 (tomorrow).  The original date, Feb. 1, was wiped out by that picturesque ice storm.  (Thank you, General Winter, for that stunning display of military power in the midst of my artistic endeavor.  Fortunately I have a camera as well as a blog.)  The theme remains "vision & sight."  Please help me boost the signal extra to make up for the shifted date -- that usually causes a dip in participation, so I'm trying to let everyone know when to show up for prompts.

All voting is now open for the 2011 Rose & Bay Awards. I've been nominated in Poetry, Other Project (for Torn World), and Patron so you can vote for me in those categories if you wish.

One epic is currently open for sponsorship. "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is ahead of production.  This is science fantasy.
