Monday Update 4-27-15

These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:
Posting Feedback
Moment of Silence: Mary Doyle Keefe
Yardening: Wood Pickup


The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics almost sold out.  One epic is in microfunding and there's money in the general fund that will reveal more verses of that.  NOT everything is posted yet, so keep an eye on this over the next few days as I work through my backlog of sponsored stuff to post.


Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inheritor of Our Fear" belongs to the Damask thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.  Mallory deals with a disapproving stranger.  (There will be more verses appearing when I have time to post them from the general fund.  Also the immediate sequel to this poem, "The Right and the Responsibility," has been sponsored and will be posted when this one is all up.)


Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "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," "Broken Hopes," "Brewing Beauty," "Little Paws in the Licenses" (fiction), "The Smallest Invaders," "Raising the Future" "Beach Pies" "Unsolid Ground" (poetry).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).


Weather here has been warmish and intermittently rainy.  Daffodils, jonquils, forsythia, wild violets, gold currants, serviceberries, lilacs, redbuds, cherries, crabapples, apples, and pear are blooming.  I got a bunch of oak seedlings (white, red, pin, bur) and wildflowers that need to be planted.

This poem is from the March 2015 Creative Jam. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] alexseanchai.

Warning: This poem contains frank discussions of reproduction and choice politics, along with examples of misogyny and hypocrisy.

Poem: "Soup Stuff"

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, and fills the "smell" square in my 9-1-14 card for the [community profile] ladiesbingo fest. It has been sponsored by EdorFaus. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics, where Danso & Family touch on what happens with Groundhog and Cassandra.

Warning: This poem deals with strong emotions brought up by a discussion of removing superpowers, along with some unpleasant childhood memories. Most of the content concerns coping skills, so it's hurt/comfort with emphasis on the latter.
