The April 2013 Crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend. See what I wrote and what was written from my prompts.

The bonus fishbowl went well. There is currently a poll open to pick a new epic for microfunding, expected to close Monday evening.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Why Old Women Fall in Love with Linguists" explores language loss and preservation across cultures.

Weather here has been variable.  It rained buckets for a few days; the fields are still flooded in places.  Last couple of days have been sunny and warm.  I finally got outside and started some spring planting.  There is a mourning dove nesting on our porch.
