Re: Thank you!

*hugs* Thank you so much. I will mark "Odds and Ends" as sponsored by you.

Since I got 10 Karma from you first, would you:
1) like me to transfer that back to you, or
2) like to sponsor my poem "The Cost of Tears" (which would usually be 20 Karma, but I'll gladly give it to you for 10 to make up for my not writing sufficiently clear price descriptions) ...?

Re: Thank you!

I would like to put the credits towards your poem! But don't worry about listing me as a sponsor of it unless you want to. I figure the karma is better off out in the world (and is deserved by someone who has created so much for TW), and if I read the general guidelines right, there's a good chance I'll get to see some of the other Torn World work that you did at some point as a Torn World sponsor. And all of your pieces looked interesting and karma worthy for sure.

Your guidelines weren't unclear. You listed karma prices only for a few short poems and everything else was in credits. My tired self just misread your post. I even thought to myself, "Wow, she's letting her stories go for way cheap." Doh!

Done. I have noted you as the sponsor. I'm glad that you are enjoying my work!

Okay. *ponder* It occurs to me, if I am only going to list karma prices for the poetry, while fiction costs US dollars or TW Credits, it might help for me to specify that.

>>I even thought to myself, "Wow, she's letting her stories go for way cheap." <<

We're actually discussing prices for stories. Some folks didn't have a specific plan in mind, just picked something that seemed appealing. I originally went with $.03/word and then dropped to $10/story (about $.01/word) when I saw other people using that price.

I am going to try to pay closer attention to my time use in the next Muse Fusion. This first day got pretty broken up for me. I need to be able to compare this to my fishbowl income. If can make a decent hourly rate writing short-short stories at $10/story, then I might keep doing that. If not, I'll put some more thought into this.
