This week's bonus fishbowl had modest participation but great plot advancement. \o/ I'm caught up on posting the sponsored poems. "Trust and Integrity" was the last of those. Also, the poem "Repetition of Thought" has been sponsored, so that will get posted as soon as "New Wine in Old Bottles" is sponsored and published.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Cheersquad gives Zima some ideas for helping Lakia.  "The Door to Nowhere" is a crossover between P.I.E. and Schrodinger's Heroes.  There are 6 new verses, in which Brenda and Darrel meet up with Chris.  "When Someone Is Vulnerable" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Officer Pink.  Turq crash-lands at Ansel's home.

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 warm, breezy spring day.  It's been nice for most of the week, so we've accomplished a lot outside.  Tonight we're due for rain.  I have planted most of what I got at the Earth Day festival on Saturday.  Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, many grackles, a brown-headed cowbird, a rufous-sided towhee, a rose-breasted grosbeak, and a squirrel.  Daffodils are winding down and the pear tree is done.  Currently blooming: violets, redbud, gold currant, lilacs, honeysuckle, zinnias.
