The February 4 Poetry Fishbowl went quite well.  Participation was more enthusiastic, and I got a lot of stuff done.  Yay!  The followup general fund poll is running until Monday night. Decide which open epic gets the leftover money. The half-price series poll is running until Monday afternoon, so catch it quick if you haven't voted. The free epic poll is tied; I'll watch for it to break the tie and then close it.

Voting is now open in all categories for the 2014 Rose & Bay Awards. Please cast your votes for excellence in crowdfunding.
Art: 10 voters
Fiction: 5 voters
Poetry: 2 voters
Webcomics: 1 voter
Other Project: 1 voter

The Bingo Valentines fest is running over on Allbingo, from February 1-21.  Get a card from any relevant fest, make your own, or use the public card.  Sexual or asexual, romantic or aromantic, come make and enjoy fun stuff about affection.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Its Very Existence" belongs to the series Path of the Paladins.  Nahum struggles to survive alone.  "The Feast of Saint Valentine" belongs to the series Frankenstein's Family.  Victor tries to renegotiate their relationship, and Igor takes it badly.

Weather here dumped a lot of snow and then cleared up.  It's been cold so the snow is sticking.  I've seen squirrels around, and more cardinals and woodpeckers drawn to the feeders.
