Crowdfunding Creative Jam

The November 2012 Crowdfunding Creative Jam is open on Dreamwidth and on LiveJournal.  This month's theme is "portals."  Come leave us prompts, or claim prompts for your own creative efforts.

What I've Written

"This Inward Gate" -- a free-verse poem about dragons that can travel between realms, and how someone discovers the method.  I'm pretty sure nobody's written this version before.

"Crafting Ways" -- 54 lines, $20
From your craft prompt I got the poem "Crafting Ways," about people who can make portals out of anything, and how they deal with conflict from a neighboring tribe.  It's written in six-line verses.

"Ascension to the Atheneum" -- 28 lines, $15
The prompt about stairs led to the free-verse poem "Ascension to the Atheneum."  An elderly librarian finds a pull-chain for a mysterious set of stairs ...

"Fluid Displacement" -- 38 lines, $15
I liked the idea of portals in unfortunate places.  In "Fluid Displacement," Ditzwell the Wonderous creates a portal in his bathroom.  Awkwardness ensues.

From Other Folks

Read "Passageword" by mdlbear for a charming look at mirror travel.
