New Crowdfunding Project: "Magpie Monday"

I'm thrilled to announce that Dreamwidth user Dialecticdreamer has launched her own crowdfunding project, Magpie Monday, to be held the second Monday of each month. Reply with prompts and get at least a page of prose privately, or a poem if you prefer. Signal boosts extend the length of your fill. Further perks are available too. The author currently has four original worlds active; you can prompt for any of those or something new. Go play!

Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Welcome to the thirty-eighth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, March 14-Sunday, March 15. The theme is "Portents of the Past and Future." 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.

Crowdfunder for the Perfect Desk

I found a desk that will serve me much better than the old card table currently in my office, and it's beautiful and I'd love to have it--but it's expensive. So I'm offering to do card readings, writing, or art to fund the desk. I am also willing to do things like beta-read or proofread a story as a thank-you for your help, if that would be more useful to you than a reading or creative work.

The fund-raiser is here: http://wyld-dandelyon.livejournal.com/241435.html

Thank you!

Selfathon is OPEN!

Sorry for the delay and short notice, everybody! We have spent the past week helping Mac's pastor move, and are now house-sitting for them all of March. We have not had internet until now, and will not have it regularly until further notice. The writeathon is still going, and I will STILL be writing, you just might get delays in my posts or responses. Thanks for your understanding!

Now, let's get on with the writeathon! The theme today is the self.

What is it that makes us us? Is it biology, the possession of a body or brain? Is there an independent soul or spirit that could exist independently? What is the difference between us and them? Really, that the self exists at all is a miracle that's drawn discussion and thought from everyone from biologists to philosophers to theologians. And this month, we are going to write about it!  Give me your prompts about bodies without selves, selves without bodies, self-discovery, and self-annihilation!

This writeathon will be taking prompts until the 8th! An extra day since I am a day late.
