Last week's half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics had a moderate turnout. I have a couple things left to post, one whole epic and one for microfunding. So if you missed the sale but still want to participate, there are actually three epics to be open in Polychrome Heroics now, all locked at the sale price of $.25/line. Even $5 will unlock 20 lines.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"These Tiny Little Steps" belongs to Frankenstein's Family. Victor is a determined father, a good doctor, and a terrible patient. "With Your Brain and Your Resourcefulness" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Antimatter and Stalwart Stan. Captured by the supervillain Velvet, Lawrence and Stan struggle to find some means of escape. "Neither Automatic Nor Inevitable" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Danso and Family. When SPOON captures the clipper who injured Cassandra, she confronts him in hope of obtaining justice. "Coming Back to Your Breath" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Aquariana. (To be posted.) We're closed for further microfunding until some of these finish.

Weather here is starting to cool a little. Sweet alyssum, torenia, blue lobelia, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, shasta daisies, echinacea, yellow coneflower, Queen Anne's lace, and compass plants are blooming.
