PoetTown on GoFundMe

You may recall that several times I have mentioned a project called PoetTown, which has been in development a long time. It's still going! A GoFundMe campaign recently opened with a detailed description of many terrific features already developed, and that's not even all of them, just the highlights. Go check it out!

Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Welcome to the thirty-fifth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, November 15-Sunday, November 16. The theme is "Salvaging and Repairing People or Ideas." (Visit the Creative Jam over on Dreamwidth.)  Note that this will be the last Creative Jam of the year; there won't be one in December due to the holiday rush.


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.

Paypal Tip Jars

I'm not certain if anyone else has seen it, but when I edited my tip jar today I saw this: Note: This button is intended for fundraising. If you are not raising money for a cause, please choose another option. Not-for-profit organisations must verify their status to withdraw the donations they receive. Users that are not verified not-for-profit organisations must demonstrate how their donations will be used, once they raise more than $10,000 USD.

Maybe it's time for them to create a crowdfunding button, for those of us who do use them, because there is no other option for permitting people to give what they want. Fortunately I think it's going to be a very long time before I reach it - I just know there are other people who might much quicker than I do, so I wanted to warn everyone, as I don't remember seeing anything about this here.

Thanksathon is OPEN!

Ladies, gentlemen, and other lovely people of distinction! The writeathon is now OPEN! The theme today is thanks and gratitude.

Giving thanks is a huge part of our culture. Be it writing thank you notes for presents during the holidays, paying debts back (or forward), all of us give thanks. But then, there are also the things we’re NOT thankful for. Be it proud ingratitude for refusing to accept a poisoned gift, or the type that gets one cursed by a wicked fairy, let’s celebrate all forms of thanks and lack of such this writeathon!

Make me write what you want to read!  This writeathon will be taking prompts until the 7th! Make sure you get your prompt into me in time!

Hiraeth updates roundup, 11/2014

Since the last mention here "Hiraeth" ran:
part fifty-four, "Road Trip", and part fifty-five"Road Trips".



Thanks to all who've been following along with the erratically-published adventures of a vampire trying to lead a quiet and moral life in this increasingly inconvenient modern world, and remember that the story also has a dedicated DreamWidth comm for your reading convenience!

CFC Service Call: What can you do?

People practicing cyberfunded creativity often need services that would be provided by a conventional business model but here must be either done personally or contracted with someone else, such as editing (for writers) or framing (for artists). What services do you offer that other folks might need?

My answer: I'm available for freelance writing and editing.  I also offer advice on crowdfunding.
