Crowdfunding Creative Jam

For whatever reason, this failed to crosspost from my Dreamwidth journal, so I'm reposting it here.

Sunday and Monday present the Crowdfunding Creative Jam, running concurrently on Dreamwidth and Livejournal.  Go claim prompts to use, leave prompts of your own, or just hang out and watch the fun.

Poetry Prices:
0-10 lines: $5 
11-25 lines: $10 
26-40 lines: $15 
41-60 lines: $20 
Poems over 60 lines, or with very intricate structure, fall into custom pricing. 

What I Have Written:

"Whose Body Encircles the Multiverse"

"The Shear Torment of Inner Truths"
From the prompt about incompatible truths I got the free-verse poem "The Shear Torment of Inner Truths." That's not a typo, but rather a reference to the shear of continental plates along fault lines; the poem is written in geographic metaphors. 
24 lines, Buy It Now = $10

"The Inescapable Agony of Being"
From the prompt about aliens posing a facade of humanity, I got the free-verse poem "The Inescapable Agony of Being." It combines shapeshifting, religion, and the quest for enlightenment. 
46 lines, Buy It Now = $20 (currently in microfunding)

"Big Black Marble"
The Dyson Sphere prompt led to the free-verse poem "Big Black Marble." It contrasts the outer and inner appearance of the structure. 
12 lines, Buy It Now = $10 

"Fragrant Prompts"
I misread "Fragment Prompts" as "Fragrant Prompts," which led to a poem titled in the latter interpretation. It is written in tercets and evokes the inner world of memory through the imagery of scent and the language of flowers. 
21 lines, Buy It Now = $10 

"The Curious Incident at the Guildhall Library"
From the prompt "the curious incident of the dragon in the library" I got "The Curious Incident at the Guildhall Library."  This is a free-verse poem belonging to my Steamsmith series. Maryam the Steamsmith is called to the Guildhall Library to deal with what turns out NOT to be a simple furnace leak after all. Note: I've used a British English spellchecker online, but this hasn't been properly britpicked yet so there may be changes. 
126 lines, Buy It Now = $63</span></span>

  • Read "Humans Are Weird"

    I've seen "Deathworld Earth" pieces before, but this one is longer and funnier.

  • Monkeydactyl

    A newly discovered type of pterodactyl had opposable thumbs that it probably used to climb trees and grasp prey.
