Monday Update 12-26-16

These are some posts from the later part of last week in case you missed them:
Low-Stress Shopping
Read Stories by Dialecticdreamer
Joyous Midwinter

The Holiday Poetry Sale was a huge success.  I still have over a dozen poems to post.  I will get to the year-end stuff as soon as I can.

LiveJournal and Dreamwidth have had service interruptions the last several days. Some stuff is not echoing properly. You can read "Woodsmoke and Memories" and "The Fullness of Life" on DW.

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.  "The Sharpest Dose of Reality" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv.  It has 22 new verses, in which Pain's Gray attempts to take care of Shiv and Shiv continues to freak out over the intimacy.  "Become Music Again" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv.  Boss White has a gift for Shiv after release from prison.

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 cool and damp.  Today it's raining.  This week at the birdfeeder I have seen many sparrows, a small flock of mourning doves, and several male cardinals.  Not much action over the last several days; wet gray weather makes birds want to hide.
