Monday Update 2-28-11

These are some posts from the later part of last week, in case you missed them:

Reading the Wind
How to Price a Human Being
Read "Souvenirs" by Aldersprig (a guest story in the Monster House world)
A Writer's Brand ... Or Not
Money Matters
Poem: "Silent Tide"
Authorial Voice vs. Character Voice
A Look at America's Problems

The February Muse Fusion over in torn_world has closed for prompts, although some creators are still in action. This is the freebie poem I contributed:
Poem: "The Sugar Mouse"
So far I have six stories completed, and some other stuff in progress; click through for the story thumbnails and sponsorship prices. In other Torn World news, check out the "Characters" page update, map update, and the language lesson on "G" verbs.

The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, March 1.  The theme is "Things With Wings."  Our net connection is being spitty; we placed a call with the service provider on Friday, so hopefully this will get fixed prior to the fishbowl.

All polls are currently open for voting in the 2011 Rose & Bay Awards.  Today is the LAST DAY for voting in all categories, except for Fiction which will be closing its primary and opening its runoff poll.

More Torn World news: "The Sky Rangers," "Clouds in the Morning," and "Cutting Time" are all still under consideration with the canon board.  "Squiggles" is almost through the first-reader process, and "On the Rocks" is in revision.  Currently in progress are "From Black to Bright," a story about Fala and Karavai during her time as part of Itrelir; and "The Ties We Twine," about Karavai, Tekura, and Ularki forming the core of their age-set.

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