Monday Update 1-23-17

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

Coping with Traumatic News
Grab Him by the Midterm

Poem: "Your Heart and Your Trust"
Poem: "The Day You Start to Move Forward"
Hard Things
Today's Discovery

There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, January 24 with a theme of "nature." I'm aiming for short, stand-alone poems this time. Drop by tomorrow and give me ideas!

Nominations are still open for the 2017 Rose & Bay Awards.  Come nominate your crowdfunding favorites in these categories:

LiveJournal is malfunctioning again, so I'm posting this here in hopes that it will echo over there.  Due to the service disruption, I can't edit the open epics right now.  I'm frustrated because this should all have been done yesterday.  Sorry for the hassle.  I can't post open epics on Dreamwidth because the editing function is lousy.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Saraphina discover a new toy.  "The Sharpest Dose of Reality" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv.  Pain's Gray attempts to take care of Shiv and Shiv continues to freak out over the intimacy.  This has been fully funded, and will be posted whenever LJ lets me edit the post again.  "So Much Worse in Its Consequences" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  It shows what happens to Cho-Cho Glow after Antimatter and Stalwart Stan dump him at the police station.  It has been fully funded by an audience poll, and the remainder will go to "A Hope and a Promise" by default.  This means there are slots open for new epic poetry, but please hold off on that until LiveJournal is working again. 

The weather is moderate and damp.  This week at the birdfeeder I have seen some sparrows and a few mourning doves. I also saw a male cardinal by my office window.
