February Patreon in Review

Okay, this is a little bit late.  But here we go: What happened in my Patreon in February.

Things marked with an * are free for everyone to read. 

The theme was Return of the Light.

The new stories in theme:

Bring Back the Sun
They had done all the rituals in the days leading up to the solstice and the long night vigil of remembrance on the night itself.  They had lit the candles and sung the songs, they way their people had been doing since that horrible night so many lifetimes ago.  Continue reading

The Renovation Mini-Prompt Call

Hello my friends!

It’s coming into spring, so we’re doing #renovations on our 140-year-old farmhouse. And renovations cost #money

I am going to try a primarily Mastodon-based prompt call for fundraising.

The theme is REBUILDING, RENOVATION, RENEWAL, REBIRTH

The way it works:

Leave a prompt (in a toot or here on the webpage)

I write a toot worth (approx. 100 words) of story to that prompt.

Want more of a given story? Donate or Patreon-ize me (if you’re already a Patron, you get two toots’ worth to start with; just remind me).

I’ll post fic to lynthornealder.com once or twice a day to keep up.

  

 

 

 

Prompt Me!

Okay.
I want to write as many approx. 150-word monsters in the next 5 days as I can stand.

Now taking prompts and/or requests

My Patreon theme this month is “return of the light” with a bonus theme of “blood and heart”

Bonus points (2 monsters+) for prompting within one or both of those themes. Continue reading

Patreon: Thresholds and Liminal places; Laying the Foundation (repost)

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…

December Patreon Theme Poll!

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!
