The coughing sickness is a contagious bacterial disease of the North.

"Writer's Handbook for the North ... Seasons" is a work in progress.  ellenmillion and I have been lobbing around some of this material for a long time.  She's breaking down a huge file I sent her and editing it into manageable pieces.  Feedback is welcome.

"Hazeleaf" is visible to the public.  This is something I wrote up based on what ellenmillion needed for a story.
Hazeleaf is a recreational and medicinal drug.

Poem: "Ad Astra Per Aspera"

This poem fills another square on my card for the [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo fest. It's actually the last one written for my first card, which is at unofficial blackout status. There are three unsponsored poems, and a fourth that I'm planning to use as the linkback perk for the October 2 Poetry Fishbowl.

The following poem belongs to Schrodinger's Heroes, featuring an apocryphal television show supported by an imaginary fandom. It's science fiction about quantum physics and saving the world from alternate dimensions. It features a very mixed cast in terms of ethnicity and sexual orientation. This project developed with input from multiple people, and it's open for everyone to play in. You can read more about the background, the characters, and a bunch of assorted content on the menu page.

Fandom: Original (Schrodinger's Heroes)
Prompt: Stars
Medium: Poetry
Summary: Tim the Tentacle Monster is feeling homesick. Morgan sympathizes. Bailey cobbles up a memento.
Content Notes: None.

Kink Bingo Card 9-29-12

Below is my card for [community profile] kink_bingo. This fest encourages people to push the limits of their comfort zone by creating erotica, pr0n, smut, and other sexy stuff in the many flavors of kinky, sensual, and otherwise exotic activities. It's open to all fandoms plus original content, and all kinds of material.  Expect much of the content to be NSFW.  Read the prompts and rules here. The signup post is here.

I thought this might be an effective way to attract some new readers. It's also useful for developing some of my more romantically adventurous series. Won't this be ... *swish* ... fun?

And, shiny new idea! People are starting to show interest in specific prompts as the new cards have gone up. If you'd like to sponsor a particular square, especially if you have an idea for what character, series, or situation it would fit -- talk to me and we'll work something out.  I'll still post some of the fills for free, because I'm using this to attract new readers; but if it brings in money, that means I can do more of it.  That's part of why I'm crossing some of the bingo prompts with other projects, such as the Poetry Fishbowl.

These prompts have been filled:
B: Fourth line bingo, 4 poems & 1 story
I: "Attention to Detail" (subspace/headspace), "Like Cherries Harmonizing Pussycats" (virginity/celibacy)
N: Third line bingo, asexual characters, 4 poems & 1 story
G: Second line bingo, genderqueer characters, 5 poems
O: First line bingo, chromatic characters, 3 poems & 2 stories
