Tuesday Update 9-11-12

So we found out that a storm broke the mounting for an antenna on the tower, causing it to move randomly, causing our net connection to blip in and out.  That's fixed now, so service should return to what passes for normal here.  I'm slowly digging through the backlog.

These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:
Poem: "Cover Stories"
Analyzing White Characters
A Captain America Wimp
Plans and Goals
New Crowdfunding Project: "The Drawing Contraption"

I'll do the followup report for the September 4, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl when I can. There will be a mid-month fishbowl on Tuesday, September 18.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Lost and Found Legion" belongs to The Silk Road Allies.  It is now complete.  "A Bug on the Wing" belongs to the series P.I.E.  It is also complete.  "Strike Twice" (Path of the Paladins) opened and closed since the last update.

Torn World writing update:

Currently in front of the canon board: "The Bones of Need" "Beached Fish" (fiction), "A Timely Gift" "Five Red Beads" "Sparkles in the Sky," "Smoke and Grass," "Felting Together," "After the Sauna," "A Light in the Darkness" "Purist Rights" (poetry), "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction).  Drafted: "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands," "Like Ash Before the Wind," "From Dark to Bright," "The Inappropriate But Useful Disposal of Lettuce" "A Thin Red Trail" "The Museum of Mortality" (fiction), "Changes in the Wind" "The Urge to Fly," (poetry), "Publishers in the Empire" (nonfiction).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "Raining Kittens," "Finding the Holes" "Reaching for the Moons" (fiction), "Breeding the Perfect Fighter," "The Smallest Invaders" (poetry).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "Winterheart" "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

We had intermittent storms this week, along with some temperate and pleasant weather.  Yard needs mowing again.  A few of the flowers are reblooming, like the petunias.
