Two Garden of Prose stories from my Chatoyant College world have been sponsored, and you can now read them in full!

"Cold Date," the story of Vertiline Gravette's last hours, is here on DW or here at the site.

"The Faerie Fountain," a story of why humans probably shouldn't take faerie lovers, is here on DW or here on the site.

[personal profile] aldersprig's Giraffe Call is open! Go prompt her about Origins and Creation!

I was thinking about doing a Garden of Prose this weekend, but my time is being devoured by cats. Also, it's Mother's Day tomorrow. So, maybe next week. Or maybe some other time. I dunno.

After several years of resistance, I have finally joined deviantArt, mostly because I've heard people find cover art for indie published books there. I have already found some awesome cover artists and I don't have anything ready to publish yet XD I'd also forgotten that people post writing there; it still seems like a terrible medium for posting fiction, but maybe I'll put up a few short pieces. However, it's also rekindling my love of drawing, and since I keep coming upon interesting tutorials, I've started drawing more again. I doubt I'll ever draw as much as I write, but maybe someday I will actually do that webcomic I've been dreaming of.

Anyway, here's me. If you're on DA we should be friends!

I haven't done a Garden of Prose for a while, because I've been so busy, but I'm planning to do one next month. Probably the 13th. It's not very lucrative, but it is fun, and I want to write more short stories to send out for sale!

[livejournal.com profile] djinni is doing another Free Icon Day. I haven't made my request yet, but I think I'm going to tip, and request icons of two Extranormal Crimes characters: Maggie and Kaede. Hmm, I have a clear idea of what I want the Kaede (as a fox) one to look like, so I guess I'll request that one first. I'm not sure about the Maggie one. I feel like she should be doing something, or holding something... holding up her badge, maybe? Any thoughts?

There's another writers friending meme for Three Weeks for Dreamwidth. I haven't commented yet, but I will...

So I promised an extra 300 words on the Garden of Prose story with the most comments. Unfortunately, the only story with more than two people commenting was "Lady Margareta's Faucet," which was already posted in full. So I went with the second best option and added another 300 words to Dream House. It needs some editing, too, but my brain won't focus on that right now. So... hope you enjoy, [personal profile] smeddley, since you said you wanted more of this one!

My poll about the extra $5 finally got a tie-breaking vote (there was a three-way tie!), so "The Other Side of the Gate" is the winner!

Here's the updated version.

For this Garden of Prose I had five prompters and received $10 in donations. That's the same amount of donations as last time and rather fewer prompters, but I'm hoping the busy-ness of December, with the post-Nano weariness and the holidays, is to blame for that. I intend to do another Garden, hopefully in January; the theme will be "paths."

I'm still working on those last two stories. Unfortunately I've been hit with a bad sinus headache the last few days that has made it hard to work. I forget how bad these can be, especially now since I haven't had one for a long time (which is excellent, my allergy meds are working)--if I think about it, it doesn't seem like a headache and some nausea should make it so difficult to concentrate, but they do. And on top of that, the story to [personal profile] aldersprig's prompt wants to be quite long.

So, anyway, just a note to tell you that the stories (well, the beginnings of them at least) will appear! Thanks for your patience!

I've received a donation, so The Sheep is now posted in full! It's a fairly short piece. I hope you all enjoy it.

There is also $5 above the amount needed to sponsor the story, so that's available to sponsor 500 words on something else. I'll post a poll after all the stories from this Garden are posted, which will hopefully be in the next few days.

I've now posted seven out of nine pieces for this Garden of Prose. The last two are in production, but may not be posted until Monday, as I'll be in the Land of Inconsistent Internet again. (Not quite the land of no internet, but I can't guarantee anything.)

I almost forgot to do the drawing for the character name winner! As promised in the original post, I wrote down everyone who promoted (at least, everyone who I knew promoted), then used random.org to generate a winner.

The winner is: [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith! Yay, Ysabet! I will probably use regular modern-day-type names in the prosies yet to be written, or there's a minor character yet to be mentioned in "A Conversation of Thought & Mind" whom you could name if you wish. You can comment here to discuss it, or PM me, or email me if you wish.

Okay, I haven't gotten near any of my goals/perk levels, but I'm going to call this a success-so-far anyway, because I have a bunch of prompts I'm really excited about! 5 people have prompted and I've raised $2. (The money will go into my savings for future moving out of my parents' house, if you're curious.) The first prompted piece should be posted soon; it is a very distracting prompt and I got caught up researching for it. Prompting is open for another nine and a quarter hours!
