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.
