There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, September 1 with a theme of "yarn, thread, and string." I hope to see you then!

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.  People worry about Steel and Moderato after the whaling incident.  We're closed for further microfunding until some of these finish.

Torn World writing update:

Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "Winterheart" (parts 2-3), "Stinging Like Nettles"  "Off the Clock" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board: "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction).
