Monday Update 4-11-16

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

Read "Thanks" by Aldersprig

Last week's poetry fishbowl generated plenty of prompts, but not a lot of donations. Polls are currently up for the free epic and bonus fishbowl series. I still need to post the one for the general fund.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Lakia's counselor worries about her.  "The Door to Nowhere" is a crossover between P.I.E. and Schrodinger's Heroes.  Brenda and Darrel tangle with Evil!Schrodinger.

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). 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" "Beach Pies" "Unsolid Ground" "Riding from the Rescue" "To Ride Death" (poetry), "Rammer" (nonfiction).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

Today is a nice spring day, temperate and breezy, partly sunny.  It's been windy and rainy much of the week, so I haven't gotten much yardwork done.  Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, many grackles, a red-bellied woodpecker, and a squirrel.  Daffodils are winding down, petals starting to shed from pear tree.  Currently blooming: daffodils, forsythia, plum tree, violets, hyacinths, pear tree.  Budding: apple tree, cherry trees, redbuds.  Leafing out: hazelnut.
