These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:

Celestial Navigation
Alien Sun?

DW user Dialecticdreamer is posting a series of demifiction entries which detail events in Easy City after the incident in my poem "Berettaflies." I'm linking them together. Also we have invited our fans to write in-character "letters to the editor" so think about what you would say if you lived near the ruptured lab that released psychotic, venomous butterflies.

The Crowdfunding Creative Jam ran this weekend. See what I wrote and inspired.

There will be a bonus Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, October 19 featuring The Ocracies. Drop by then to leave me prompts!

Poetry in Microfunding:
"These Tiny Little Steps" is now complete.  See how Victor and Adam settle the caregiving issue.  "The Most Powerful, Master Emotion" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  It details the cleanup of environmental disasters after World War II.

Lovely fall weather here, although we recently turned on the heat for the first time.  On Saturday, we went to the farmer's market.  Yesterday I made lamb spaghetti sauce, and today's project will be sloppy jose filling.  Torenia, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, morning glories, and frost asters are blooming.  The big bag of tulips has been planted, and now I've got paperwhite narcissus to put out.  Also I hauled two wheelbarrows of leaves to mulch the daffodil bed.
