The Faerie Apocalypse is liveblogged at [personal profile] faeapoclive, [tumblr.com profile] faeapoclive, and [twitter.com profile] faeapoclive. What what happens when the gods return to our world.
Stranded World (LJ Link), modern fantasy seen through the eyes of 4 siblings who work the webs of the world, each in their own way.
Reiassan (LJ Link), high fantasy in a world just recovering from centuries of battle.
Tir na Cali (LJ Link); technically modern fantasy, alternate-history timeline, primarily lifestyle-kink erotica.
Faerie Apocalypse (LJ Link), a dystopic modern and post-modern fantasy/apoc world. Faeries and gods live among us, disguised as humans, their culture underground.
Addergoole (LJ Link) is a school within the Faerie Apocalypse setting.
Vas' World (LJ Link): the team was sent to explore the planet for colonization. They could never have guessed what they'd find.
Dragons Next Door (LJ Link)is a fun high-fantasy-in-the-burbs setting with a few good-with-ketchup crunchy dark bits.
Facets of Dusk (LJ Link) is a mystery waiting to be revealed; come along for the show!
The Planners (LJ Link): When the Apocalypse came, they were prepared. Very Prepared.
Unicorn/Factory (LJ) of the costs of progress.
The Aunt Family (LJ) - a mysterious family with some very strange magical artifacts.
Space Accountant (LJ) All Genique wanted was a nice vacation.
Shadow Rebellion (LJ) It all started with the shadows moving...
Science! (Lj) Why haven't Mad Scientists taken over the world yet?
Fairy Town There's something about the city. Something in the water, maybe?
Setting Nursery - these one-off stories may blossom into settings some day (incomplete)

All of my writing here is crowdfunded and crowdsourced; comments and suggestions keep the gears spinning and donations keep the power on.
My Donor landing page is here (and on LJ); you can tip (tips go in a general pool to sponsor longer stories, voted on monthly), sponsor an already-written story, or commission a story to be written.

Once a month I open up a call for prompts; the Giraffe Call's landing page is here and on LJ.

I hosted a 30-days of flash fiction meme: its landing page is here (LJ Link)

The Black Suits Are Coming to Get Me

Okay, this is getting pretty disturbing. Yesterday, the expensive-suit people came back - barged in, really - and dug through all of my roommate’s books again, and all of hew new notes. They mostly missed my stuff because I told them - the truth! - that I was working on a paper on monasteries and similar architectural artifacts.
But now I’m reading books in my closet, in the back room of the library, in the crappy cafe nobody uses. And those monks are pretty frighting. Maybe more so than expensive-suit people.

aldersprig: (BookGlasses)
As the post-nano emotional hangover fades, I'm looking at December and trying to figure out how to harness all this energy.

Without, of course, burning myself out.

So, what I have is:
  • Edally Academy begins posting on about January 15. By then I need:
    • at least the first 8 installations edited, cleaned up, and second-drafted
    • a web page created
    • at least one ad ready
    • at least three teasers done

  • January's not-quite-a-nano project is Rin & Girey. By then I need:
    • to finish and smooth out the outline and figure out what, if anything, I need to change in the current iteration to make it go better in the outline.
    • to decide where it ends.

  • I have two submissions to get done in early December:
    • Superhero Romance for Good Mourning
    • 713/Kazka Oress

  • I need to wrap up and send Alder by Posts in one giant mailing of apologetic doom.
  • If I finish the submissions by the 10th, I am going to spend 15 days re-writing Addergoole Book One from the 10th-Christmas. To do that I need:
    • to finish the outline

This would leave me time for a Giraffe Call (it really would). The question is: is there interest? The last one brought in very few prompts and no $ at all. And while I love doing them, if you guys don't like them too, there's not so much point.

So, that's my December and January. What about yours?

Goood morning!

I am above par so far on Nano, hitting 36,000 words yesterday. The story is going well, if oddly.

With the posting of Creeped Right Out for [livejournal.com profile] rix_scadedu's commission (LJ) and Encyclopedia Californica: The Modified Humanoid in Tir na Cali Culture for the setting piece, I have finished the October Giraffe Call!

I need to talk to [personal profile] lilfluff to see what stories he wants continued for his donation, finish Rix's commission, and close the polls to finish November's Giraffe Call.

Said polls:
http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/180037.html and
http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/325696.html
currently show "Mother Knows/Encountering Dad" in the lead, with "The Life you Make" and "Parent-Teacher Conference" currently trailing.

All in all, I'd say it's been an insanely productive first half of November!
aldersprig: a close up of an alder leaf (Leaf)
I have one more piece to continue for [personal profile] lilfluff and one to expand upon for [livejournal.com profile] the_vulture, but I have enough to write a summary for last week's call for prompts (and on LJ).

This was a relatively small-response Giraffe Call, but there were both new donors and new prompters. I am $35 closer to my giraffe carpet - thank you very much!
