Summer is cranking on and it’s nearly August!

July was a bit of a mess for me — see That was Spinal Tap — but I’ve been trucking away!

Read On!




The poll has spoken! And Magical Dates is the motif for August.
This can be about magic on the calendar, dates that get sparkles, dating a magical girl/boy...



It’s going to be a sparkly month!

The poll has spoken!

The theme for January is Thresholds and Liminal Spaces. For a $5/month pledge, you can leave all the prompts you want.

Doorways literal and figurative, steps into new lives, leaving beyond the old - it's a good theme for a new year.

Prompt Here



This was originally posted on February 15, 2012; it's an early-ish story of Stranded world and it involves both thresholds and transitions.

"I think you should come hang out next weekend," Calgary told Autumn, over the last beer of the last day of Faire. "Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur are building a house."

"Seriously?" she raised an eyebrow. She was far too drunk to be polite when faced with that.

Calgary grinned, and quaffed her beer. "Three friends of mine, been together since college. Not Faire folk but fair folk, if you know what I mean...

Welcome to December! In the Northern Hemisphere, Winter is nearly here, and I think it might already be Summer in Australia.

And I have a Patreon! (Here: patreon.com/aldersprig) And each month I have a poll to determine what I'll be writing about in that Patreon for the month.

The theme then opens up a prompt call for all Director-level donors (I made up some names. I'm still working on them). And then I start writing!

It's that time again!

Time to decide what my Patreon theme will be for October; time to cast your vote and make it count.

It's time to look at spooks and creepy people, monsters and fairies, costumes and false faces. It's time to dig into your urban legend stock and decide exactly how spooky you want your Hallowe'en to be.

My Patreon is here. Every month I post:
1 free short-short story
1 locked short-short story
1 locked long short story

We're just $3 from getting back to the Serial Story milestone, where poor Nimbus has been stuck in the middle of a deadly plant for months! And a $5 pledge will let you prompt in all the prompt calls....

This month's Patreon theme is Dragons Next Door: The new neighbors have moved in next to Aud & Sage, and they're certainly interesting...

Smokey Knoll is an exciting place to live, but for Aud and Sage, their kids, and their neighbors the Smiths, it's just... life. Harpies, centaurs, and tiny people in the walls; kidnappers, magic-users, and strange poisons in black jars... Aud just wants to get through the latest parent-teacher meeting, and nevermind the mayor's latest problem.

I've started out by reposting the story that started it all, "Damn Dragons, Get Off My Lawn!"

The poll has closed, and June's Patreon theme is Reiassan!

Home of Rin & Girey, Edally Academy, goat-riding Calenyena and the Bitrani that just can't win, Reiassan is a setting spanning thousands of years and an entire continent and then some.

And you can read more of it!



Think about it this way.

For $1/month, you're getting $40 worth of my writing - and for everyone else who pledges, that amount goes up. It's a magazine subscription, but one with no ads, where you get to vote on the content monthly.

For $5/month, you're on the editorial board. YOU tell me what to write. YOU pick characters and themes and even pregnant forests for the serials. YOU pick characters for me to commission art of. You're in the driver's seat.

And if you like that, for $7/month, you can have your own super-secret story, written only for people at that prompting level (Be the first! Pick your very own story!)

Want even MORE exclusivity? Pledge $15/month and it'll be like commissioning your own very story - a short piece of fiction ONLY for you.

Check it out!
Every pledge made gets us close to all patrons having more words in their inbox each month!

The poll has spoken, and by an overwhelming majority, the theme for February is Dragons Next Door!

You can find a landing page here: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/82513.html

When the ogres next door moved out, Audrey didn't know what to expect for her next neighbors. She never expected the Smiths to end up close friends, not only for her children, but for her.

The world Audrey and the Smiths live in bursts at the seams with magic, magic butting heads with ordinary, everyday, normal human life. Goblins and gremlins, centaurs and harpies, dragons and pixes - they all come together in Smokey Knoll.

For a pledge of just $5/month, you can prompt in my Patreon prompt call! For $1/month, you can read all the fiction posted on Patreon!

The poll for the February Theme is here: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/1060312.html

As of this posting, Dragons Next Door (Setting) has a clear lead, 7 to the runner-ups' 4 (Stranded World (Setting) and Weather and the Outdoors (motif)).

I'll leave the poll open for 6 hours from this posting - that would make it 12:18 Eastern Time when it closes.

Vote! Let your voice be read!

Oh, no, not the briar patch...

The poll has spoken, and the theme for September will be CATS!

Big cats, little cats, cat-people, cat-shaped aliens, cat myths, the fog, on little cat feet....

Cats!

Me-ow, me-ow

I will write the following stories for Patreon:

1 free-for-everyone flash fiction, 1 Patreon-only flash fiction, and one Patreon-only short story.

Others may be written as it pleases me.

The poll has been polled, the numbers counted, and the results for August are: Fae Apoc

The Faerie Apocalypse is the broader universe in which Addergoole and Doomsday Academy are set, the brief premise of which is that fae-like creatures with magical powers walk among us and, in 2011, they enter into a massive war with other fae-like creatures, triggering an apocalypse which wipes 90% of humanity (and fae) off the globe.

Its landing page is here: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/938780.html

As always, I will write the following Patreon stories:

$5 level - a Patron-only microfiction (or, in this case, micro-continuation)

$20 level - a Patron-only flash fiction (or about 750-1250 words of continuation)

$30 level - if I gain any $7+ Patrons, they may prompt for a private continuation.

And, if we get up to $40 (one more $5 Patron & one $1 Patron! or 6 more $1 Patrons!), then we can talk about the Patreon Serial!!

Check out my Patreon here - https://www.patreon.com/aldersprig?ty=c

Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in fae apoc!

The poll has been polled, the numbers counted, and the results for July are: More, please.

I have this habit of writing things that end on cliffhangers, you may have noticed. So this theme is the chance to go Hey, that story you wrote last year? Write more of it, 'kay?

As always, I will write the following Patreon stories:

$5 level - a Patron-only microfiction (or, in this case, micro-continuation)

$20 level - a Patron-only flash fiction (or about 750-1250 words of continuation)

$30 level - if I gain any $7+ Patrons, they may prompt for a private continuation.

And, if we get up to $40 (two more $5 Patrons! or 10 more $1 Patrons!), then we can talk about the Patreon Serial!!

July needs a theme!

Why, Lyn, you ask? Well, so that I have a base from which to do my Patreon prompt call!

Well, what's that do, you ask? Well, then I write stories! Two for the Patreon patrons, and at least one for everyone (that's you)!

If you don't have a DW account, pls. vote in the comments.

I will close this poll July 1 at or around 8 p.m. Eastern time.

You, the Readers, have spoken - or at least six of you - and Stranded World will be the theme for April!

“So,” Winter explained to his younger sisters, “the world is like a giant spaghetti squash.” He jammed his fork into their dinner. “Everything looks solid, right? But,” he twisted the fork, “if you grab thing just the right way, you can see how it’s all made of long strands. Except in the case of the world, the strands are magic.”

His three younger sisters, used to taking Big Brother as the authority on everything, were still dubious.


The siblings Winter, Autumn, Summer, and Spring each manipulate and read the strands of the world in their own way, while attempting to live within the world as normally as possible. The Stranded World is contemporary fantasy, slice-of-life with a magical overtone, following the threads of their lives.

It's almost November, and the Dungeon Call was so successful, I almost forgot about the October theme!

I'm taking prompts on the theme "Impossible Situations;" I'll write at least 100 words to at least the first five prompters.

Prompt in any setting, any characters. I'll see what I can do!
