Creative Jam

The one-hundredth [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam is now open with a theme of "Good vs. Bad." :D 3q3q3q!!! Come give us prompts or claim some for your own inspiration. I'm hoping for a big turnout this time.


What I Have Written

"Flood Gifts" is today's freebie.

Your light/dark prompt inspired the free-verse poem "The Loving Embrace of Night." It features one of three species on a hot eyeball planet, the Ice People.
44 lines, Buy It Now = $20

Your Eloquent Souls prompt inspired the free-verse poem "The Transmigration of Soulmarks." Gender affirmation usually breaks up a pre-existing relationship, but sometimes that opens the way for new connections.
144 lines, Buy It Now = $72

Your garden prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Ouroboros Insects." Instead of eating raspberries, they eat each other.
21 lines, 6 verses, Buy It Now = $10

Your natural prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Breathing Through Eternity." Birth and death are both as natural and necessary as breathing in and breathing out.
33 lines, 13 verses, Buy It Now = $15

Your relearning prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Growing Through the Cracks." It focuses on the importance of being yourself.
32 lines, Buy It Now = $15

Birdfeeding

Today is partly sunny and mild.

I fed the birds.  I've seen sparrows, house finches, and  mourning doves today.

I picked up sticks from the barrel garden to the goldenrain tree.

EDIT 4/17/21 -- We cut brush in the prairie garden from the east edge, along the north path, down part of the west path.  Yay, progress!

Redbud trees and pie cherries are in full bloom.  Wild strawberries are starting to bloom.

EDIT 4/17/21 -- I finished picking up sticks from the yard by the house.

Bonus Fishbowl on Tuesday, April 20

There will be a Bonus Fishbowl on Tuesday, April 20 featuring the Daughters of the Apocalypse series. This is postapocalyptic hopepunk dominated by young female people of color. Older, male, and white people all got hit harder by the Grunge. Fifteen years after the End, people are trying to rebuild society as best they can, but this is where many scavenged supplies are really starting to run out, so they'll need to make more and more of their own stuff -- if they can. Drastic changes in society have yet to settle into a new, stable configuration and there are many different clusters of civilization out there all trying different things.
