Winterfaire 2016 is still open. Do you have goods or services that would make a good holiday gift? Come post a booth! Are you shopping for hard-to-find items? Come look at the offerings, or post what you're hunting. Do you have a holiday shopping post, or know of one? Give me links and I'll cross-list them.

The half-price sale in Shiv has SOLD OUT. All of those poems have now been posted.  \o/  I still have the mega epic to post for the stretch goal from that. Anyhow, check the sale page to make sure you've read all the new poetry.

The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, December 6 with a theme of "All the news is dark, so light a candle."  I hope to see you then!

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Sunny tries to talk Cheersquad into taking a break.  "A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan explores the Rainbow Room.

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).

The weather has been chilly with a little rain.  The furnace is currently working, so the house is warm; but it won't stand up to very cold weather.  We have firewood, of a more appropriate size, which is supposed to be mostly oak.  We also have quotes on installing new equipment from a different service provider.  Yay, progress!  Sizable flocks of sparrows have been visiting the birdfeeders this week.
