Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Welcome to the forty-third Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, August 15-Sunday, August 16. The theme is "Science & Scientists." Visit the Creative Jam over on Dreamwidth.


Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

Crowdfunding: free+paid model

I'm very much a paddler in the shallow end of crowdfunding - I've run a prompt call about once a year for the past few years, and I run a serial web-novel called Tapestry, which a few lovely people support via Patreon. I've recently been trying to be a bit more serious/useful about it, brushing up my website and my pitches, but I'm looking for outside expertise now. (In addition, a comment with a prompt idea gets 300 words written to it between now and Sunday evening.) What I'd really like is to hear about what people have done that's worked (or not worked), either in terms of audience joy or in terms of revenue.

(I hope this is an appropriate topic! Hello, nice to meet you all.)

Back to Crowdfunding

Although there are still certain things I can't do, thank you EU VAT laws, I am once again crowdfunding at my website. I can't offer any pre-written stories for sponsorship, unfortunately, so I need to decide what to do with everything I've already written, but I am offering newly written continuations for anything posted, for £3.00 per 1000 words. My commissions for newly written stories are a little more expensive, because they work differently to the continuations. Collection ebooks are available for free download and all donations are gratefully received. They're going to be updated at least once a year, when I'm back to writing normally.

Navigation has been changed a little. I'm doing my best to make it all as simple as possible. Unfortunately crossposting is now impossible, as no one's been updating the plug-ins, but I do have RSS feeds. They're posted at the website.

Recently a lot has happened. There's been death, we've moved into the annex, I have an office, and I'm now the main breadwinner. We're still getting to where we want to be, but I'm sure it's going to happen. At the moment my focus is on making my original fiction one income stream - because I know I can't rely on the ghostwriting. My goal is £300 a month, which I'm hoping to reach by the end of the year, as I have a lot of plans to be working on. I just hope August is a little easier than July has been.

Tarot of the Mice Kickstarter

Howdy! I'm Amanda "Snobahr" Geyer, and I was inspired to create a mouse-centric tarot deck. Tarot of the Mice, which will be used at CaliFur 2016 in Los Angeles, California in the first weekend of June.

The Fool, partial sample

I started reading tarot sometime around 1974, when Santa left a Rider-Waite deck in my stocking. I learned the 10-card Celtic Cross spread first, and then put it aside, poking at it every now and again, but not really seriously. After I got married in 1990, I started working with my tarot cards again, and saw some lovely decks in a local book store. I picked up one illustrated by Mary Hanson-Roberts, and used that almost exclusively for several years, before I got the Robin Wood tarot, which I felt a stronger connection to. Now, I work with the Universal Waite deck, the Housewives Tarot, the Tarot of Pagan Cats, and the Robin Wood tarot.

It started with a furry convention.

No, really, it did. As part of Wulfenbahr Arts, I attended CaliFur 2015. This year's theme was "Manga & Anime" and it was cute and fun, but when CaliFur announced the theme for 2016, "High Fantasy & Renaissance Faire," one of my first thoughts was, "OMG, I need new garb! OMG, I could totally do a peasant fortune teller! OMG, I need to brush up on palmistry and do a whole booth as a furry fortune teller!" My husband, the Wulf of Wulfenbahr Arts (I'm the Bahr), suggested one of his Reaper miniatures, "Madame Gorgonzola" the fortune teller. So, I'm building my whole furry fortune-telling schtick around an anthropomorphic mouse. I will be cosplaying "Madame Provalone, Teller of Fortunes!" This got me thinking about how much fun I've had in the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire.

For this, I need a deck. For this, I need a mouse deck. For this, I need Tarot Of The Mice! For this, I need to design it!
