The Polychrome Heroics sale is SOLD OUT!  Woohoo!  That's a ton of poetry.  Some of the sponsored ones have been posted, but I still have a lot left to do and that's going to sprawl out over time.  Please be patient and continue to watch for new poems to appear. 

On the bright side, I finished a draft of my last Llewellyn article for the year.  Just need to get that polished and submitted, then it's one more project off my desk.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Lotus Warriors" is science fiction about an alien invasion, the Resistance against which is led by people with chronic fatigue syndrome.  In my writing, ANYONE can be a hero!  "Climbing Rocks" belongs to the series P.I.E.  Brenda and Darrel face off against a rock monster.  "What a Precious Privilege" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  It features Stan and Lawrence working out their relationship the morning after Lawrence was sick.  It is fully funded,  but not fully posted yet.

Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands (Parts 1-4)," "Winterheart" (parts 2-3), "Stinging Like Nettles"  "Off the Clock" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board: "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction). Drafted: "Like Ash Before the Wind," "From Dark to Bright," "The Inappropriate But Useful Disposal of Lettuce" "A Thin Red Trail" (fiction), "Changes in the Wind" (poetry), "Southern Breads" "Tangleweed Article" (articles), Jularei (character sheet).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "Raining Kittens," "Finding the Holes" (fiction), "The Smallest Invaders"  (poetry).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

Weather has been lovely here.  Currently blooming: marigolds, portulaca, zinnias, sweet alyssum, torenia, lantana.  Green fruit: pears. 

Poem: "Facing Justice"

This poem is spillover from the October 7, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by prompts from zianuray and janetmiles.  It also fills the "women being awesome" square in my 9-1-14 card for the Ladiesbingo fest.  This poem has been sponsored by an anonymous donation.  Thank you, Mysterious Stranger!  It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

I have submitted the last of my Llewellyn articles for the summer writing season.  Yaaay!  

Usually this is where I take a day or few off.  Instead I have Samhain season this year.  0_o  But the articles are DONE and the daffodils are DONE.  So, progress.
