The Crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend.  See my post about what I wrote and what people wrote from my prompts.

There will be a half-price sale in Frankenstein's Family from March 16-22.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Often Buried Deep" belongs to the series An Army of One.  It follows Astin on the trader's loop.  "Settled" is the third piece of the Polychrome Heroics triptych about the fight at SPOON.  It has five new verses, with Aidan and Danso discussing nightmares.

Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "Cutting Cords and Clasping Hands (Parts 1-4)," "Winterheart" (parts 2-3), "Stinging Like Nettles"  "Off the Clock" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board: "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction). Drafted: "Like Ash Before the Wind," "From Dark to Bright," "The Inappropriate But Useful Disposal of Lettuce" "A Thin Red Trail" (fiction), "Changes in the Wind" (poetry), "Southern Breads" "Tangleweed Article" (articles), Jularei (character sheet).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "Raining Kittens," "Finding the Holes," "Broken Hopes," "Brewing Beauty," "Little Paws in the Licenses" (fiction), "The Smallest Invaders," "Raising the Future"  (poetry).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

It's been warm here.  Tulips and daffodils are starting to poke out of the ground, at what I consider a reasonable time rather than popping in January or February like the last several years.  I suspect we'll get another cold snap, but for now it's really nice out.  At first the ground was too soggy to walk on.  Yesterday it had dried enough that I managed to pick up some logs.  Today we're hoping to do more of that.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, male and female cardinals, a few mourning doves.  I have also seen rabbits and a squirrel.
