Crowdfunding Creative Jam

The March 2015 Crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open, with a theme of "portents of the past and future."  Visit us on Dreamwidth and LiveJournal to leave prompts, or claim something for your own inspiration.

From My Prompts:

[personal profile] thebonesofferalletters has written the ficlet "See the World" based on my prompt.  This is superhero fantasy with genderqueer and otherwise diverse characters.  Lightworks and Soundbytes is intended as a new serial.  *happydance*

[personal profile] alexconall has done the poem "Write It Down" based on my prompt.  This is a splendid piece of feminist literature.

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written the ficlet "Past Ports" about Piotr and Hannah.

What I Have Written:

"Sequential Science" is today's freebie, a Torn World poem about earthquakes.

"Why the Wind Sings"
A Heliodrax prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Why the Wind Sings." Merle studies weather on the island of Nauru.
42 lines, Buy It Now = $20

"The Tenth Dimension"
A prompt about [community profile] nineforthenebulasheart  led to the free-verse poem "The Tenth Dimension." The Nebula's Heart declares that none of the current questers are suitable and sends them out to find another.
50 lines, Buy It Now = $20

"Would-Be Sacraments"
A past and future prompt inspired the poem "Would-Be Sacraments." Terramagne has better protections for reproductive health care. This is why.
96 lines, Buy It Now = $48

" 'Til Legends Live"
This inspired the free-verse poem " 'Til Legends Live." Granny Whammy and Dr. Infanta are both living legends in their own way, bridging the past and the future. Their lives are entwined even though they're on opposite sides of the cape, and sometimes that gets interesting.
80 lines, Buy It Now = $40

"Between a Whale's Past and Present"
Japanese whalers attack Steel and Moderato.  Steel tears their ship apart.


Poem: "Sequential Science"

This is the freebie for the March 2015 Creative Jam. It was prompted by [personal profile] ellenmillion and belongs to the Torn World project.

"Sequential Science"

The earth trembles and shakes,
and the barriers collapse.

The barriers collapse, and
the earth trembles and shakes.

The scientists argue heatedly
over which of these things is true.

Sequential science is a field
fraught with contentions.

Mariyalena straightens her robe,
decks her notes, and steps into the fray.
