I have updated my Serial Poetry page following the January 8, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl, which had a theme of "military science fiction." There is a new entry for "Tripping into the Future" and a new poem linked in "Lacquerware." The subpages for Kung Fu Robots and Monster House have been updated with new poems. Another new series, "An Army of One: The Autistic Secession" is already long enough to have its own subpage.
There will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, January 22 featuring a poetic series.
I have updated the Serial Poetry section to include poems from bingo fests, the Holiday Poetry Sale, and other recent activities. In particular, the new series "The Bat Vampires" now has an entry on the main Serial Poetry page. Updated subpages include Fiorenza the Wisewoman, Fledgling Grace, Hart's Farm, Kung Fu Robots, and One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis. Everything should be current now, in preparation for the next Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, January 8 (on the topic of "military science fiction").
The Serial Poetry page was getting long and difficult to navigate. Several readers have expressed concerns about this; thank you for your input.
To improve navigation, I have created subpages for the longer series: Fiorenza the Wisewoman, Fledgling Grace, Hart's Farm, Kung Fu Robots, Monster House, The Ocracies, One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis, The Origami Mage, Path of the Paladins, Sort Of Heroes, and The Steamsmith.
The main Serial Poetry page now has just the description of those longer series followed by a link to the subpage. Each subpage has a link back to the main page for more series.
I've also touched up the header text on the main Serial Poetry page.
Subdividing the Serial Poetry page meets a goal on my list for 2013.
Visit the Serial Poetry page for updates. There are two new series entries: Fledgling Grace and Kande's Quest. The Steamsmith has been updated following the half-price sale.
I have added three new poems to the Hart's Farm series on the Serial Poetry page. There are also a couple of new poems on the menu page for Schrodinger's Heroes over on my Dreamwidth blog. These are my first bingo set for Cottoncandy_bingo fest. You can see my bingo card here.
B1: "Sweet Words" (Hart's Farm)
B2: "The Threads of Our Lives" (Hart's Farm)
B3: "Hartlines" (Hart's Farm)
B4: "Come In, Please" (Schrodinger's Heroes)
B5: "The Cat's Pajamas" (Schrodinger's Heroes)
My hope with this fest is to attract some new readers and expand some of the more light-hearted series.
I have revised the Crowdfunding section on Economics. Now the Economics page has thumbnail descriptions with links to subpages. The original sections all have their own page now: 1000 True Fans, The Long Tail Theory, Money Handling, and Websites for Crowdfunding Projects. All of those have expanded at least a little bit. The last one has grown greatly, with many new crowdfunding platforms added and much more detail in the descriptions of those websites that provided good information about their services. So if you're into crowdfunding as a creator or patron, check it out.
I have updated the Serial Poetry page with material from the May 1, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. There are two new poems listed in Path of the Paladins and two new poems in Sort Of Heroes. The linkback perk poem for Sort Of Heroes has been linked. There is also a new series listed, The Asgard Eddas, with two poems listed; one is from 2008 and one is new this month.
Poetry from the April 3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl (and spillover) has been added to the Serial Poetry page. There are two new poems in The Steamsmith, one of which has already been sponsored. There are two new series -- Lacquerware and Kung Fu Robots -- each with several poems, ALL of which are already sponsored or in crowdfunding now. Go have fun.
The Serial Poetry page has been updated with listings of eight new Path of the Paladins poems from the March 20, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. Those already published are linked accordingly.
