I'm sorry that LiveJournal is still mangled and presenting my blog (at least to me) in a format that's difficult to read. Hopefully they will find both hands and a map sometime soon.

Please vote for themes in the Poetry Fishbowl if you haven't already done so. Both open epics have been completed. Also, the November Poetry Fishbowl SOLD OUT, so you can read ALL the poems by following the links in the followup report.

Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Squiggles: Excerpts from Nleimen's Journal," "On the Rocks," (fiction).  Back to me for edits: "Catch and Release," (fiction), "Seafoam Fashions," "Hide Away," "Red Glass, Green Glass," "Bitter Herbs" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board:  "Dairy Sow" (nonfiction).  Drafted: "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands," "Like Ash Before the Wind," "Breaking the Ice," "From Dark to Bright," "Beached Fish," (fiction) and "The Hearsay Cafe," "The Colors of the Rainbow," "How Skycat Got Her Name" (poetry).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "The Green Speech," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "The Bones of Need" (fiction).  Currently writing: "Raining Kittens," "Catch of the Day," "Reaching for the Moons" (fiction).

It's windy and wet here.  More birds are discovering the feeders; I saw a mourning dove in the tree above the hopper feeder recently.  Yay, wildlife!
