This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, December 4, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "alternate realities."
I'll be soliciting ideas for dimension travelers, fish out of water, people with mental differences, clergy, shamen, counselors, psychiatrists, philosphers, archaeologists, psychedelic explorers, foreseers, other people who deal in alternate realities, looking ahead, looking back, comparing differences, losing your way, losing your mind, remembering things that aren't anymore, supporting each other through hard times, traveling, fighting, struggling to survive, bringing solutions from other realities into the one you're in now, counseling, changing the way things are, discovering problems, troubleshooting, finding creative solutions, asking questions, helping others, alternate dimensions, Faerie, the Underworld, the Afterlife, cyberspace, laboratories, churches or temples, counseling centers, cemeteries, drug dens, other places where realities overlap, entheogens, dimensional portals or devices, time travel, alternate history, future history, reality tunnels, imprint vulnerability
, different perspectives, personal growth, confusion, determination, unforseen circumstances, Self-Duplication
, Reality Warping
, and poetic forms in particular.
Among my more relevant series:Fledgling Grace

, Submerged Nebraska
, The Time Towers Polychrome Heroics
has a number of relevant characters. Antimatter
can alter reality by shifting the laws of science. Dr. Infanta
can see the future; so can the Pythia.The Blueshift Troupers
has very different layers of civilization from the Annula to the Fimbria, major character features can change during metamorphosis, and the setting itself is designed to be flexible across realities.Shrodinger's Heroes
is all about interdimensional travel.The Ursulan Cycle
is genderbent Arthurian Cycle.
I have a linkback poem, "Always Carry Your Goodness" (16 verses, Polychrome Heroics).
If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts. I am now.) Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.
