The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Free Poetry Poll
I'm finally managing to dig through the backlog from the crashed fishbowl on Tuesday.  The Steamsmith brought in 2 new prompters, so you get another free poem there.  Folks seem comfortable with $1/line pricing on these to account for them taking about double the usual time to create.  Hart's Farm, in the Creative Jam and following, brought in 3 new prompters and 3 new donors (with some overlap between those categories) so I'm offering a freebie there too.  I've written a couple of new poems, so there are two choices for each series.

I will keep the poll open until at least Tuesday morning.  If there are clear winners then, I'll close it.  Otherwise, I may leave it open a little longer.

The Steamsmith

"Spots" -- 150 lines, $150
Raising a cheetah cub is not easy, but Maryam rises to the occasion.  Farasat is cute and exasperating, and did I mention cute?

"Tunnel Vision" -- 181 lines, $181
Maryam visits the lounge in the Steamsmith Guild, which also contains Old Henry, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Arthur Wellesley, and the two young noblemen I mentioned recently, George Cavendish and William Percy.

Hart's Farm

"After Dark" -- 49 lines, $20
Solvig and her friend Hrafn, the farm's bookkeeper, are enjoying a quiet evening in the common house.  There's a little bit more of Auduna in this poem as she tiptoes past them.  Also, Hrafn and his wife Gróa are the only monogamous couple I've spotted so far.

"Low-Hanging Fruit" -- 92 lines, $46
During the apple harvest, Auduna discovers one of the odd things that some of the farm folk like to do -- Aisling is trussed up in red rope, hanging in a tree.
