This weekend's Muse Fusion went well. I finished three stories ("Catch and Release," "Swept Away," and "When the Wind's Teeth Sing") and two poems ("Seafoam Fashions" and "The Shipwright's Song"). I also started another story, "Catch of the Day." "Swept Away" has already been sponsored, so that bumps it toward the top of my task list. Pending various revision and approval processes, that will become visible to the public.

The epic poem "Igor's Creature" is now in microfunding. This is ... well, a mix of horror and science fiction with a large helping of sociology and a wry twist of humor. The epic poem "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is ahead of production. The "Serial Poetry" page on my website has been updated to include the new Fiorenza poem.
Several wet chilly days have given way to visible sunlight, so I'm hoping to get outside today and trim part of the south hedge and shear the grass around the wellcap. Yesterday the net connection went down for half the day, though, so I'm backlogged on my basic computer stuff.
