Prompt Call! And it’s a ~~Dangerous~~ one!

I’ve decided I want to do a prompt call!

Just for fun, to be honest, although I like tips, will write you more words for anything over $1 tipped, and have two current goals for said tips – a Wacom tablet for map-drawing and a day-long writing retreat.

The theme for this call is: The Third Rail

“Never discuss politics or religion in polite company.”

Don’t talk about Money, Politics, Sex, or Religion.

“I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.” – Mark Twain, Attributed

So!

Here’s the trick

only fictional interpretations of these subjects

No unveiled or thinly-veiled real-life situations.  They will be ignored.

That being said – put it on me.  Extant settings or a new setting or something else altogether.  What sort of politics and religion, (or Money or sex) do you want to talk about?

What sort of things do you wonder about?

What similar taboos do other fictional settings have, mmm?

Bring it on!

What does an ideal prompt look like?

Well, it sticks to the topic of the call.

It gives me room to wiggle but has a little guidance to it.

It’s at least 4 words long (or possibly a picture).

Choices!  You can leave as many prompts as you want!  I’ll probably only write to one, but choices are great.

Kaijune

Gentlefolk: It is Kaijune!

I invite you to leave me prompts (image, word, concept, all three) about kaiju!

I last did this as a Patreon theme back in June 2017, so it seems fitting to revisit it now.

Anyone can prompt!  Stories will generally be 250-500 words and can always be continued for a tip.

(Tips, at the moment, are going in the “finish the bathroom and the attic” fund, as our bathroom is still missing walls).

Mer-May

Warning: Pinterest

In honor of Pinterest getting sub-boards (YAY!) and Mer-May and… things… I offer this prompt call.

Either:

Check out my Addergoole Changes Pinterest board and/or the Mermaids sub-board (I’m still moving stuff…)

or my Tumblr tags Addergoole Change and/or Addergoole Changes

(or just do some google image searching)

Pick an image, and prompt me with it.

Text along with the image is welcome (“what is he plotting?” “Why is she there?” “This should be in Things Unspoken…”)

No promises I’ll get to them all, but I’ll try to do at least a few a week all May.

(Aquatic creatures are clearly the preference but not required)

Renovation Fics

These are a few microfics, written to prompts for my Renovations Prompt Mini-Call (which is still open as long as I keep getting prompt).

Claim the Sun

The tree was ancient, the sort of monster that managed to live through a convergence of luck and good soil, best placement and the weakness of her neighbors.  She had sucked up all the sunlight for what seemed, to the younger trees, like miles. And she had, in turn, sucked up lightning blasts.

It had been the last one that killed her, cutting through old scar tissue and toppling her in a  crash louder than any thunder. 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

Merry Christmas!

Hello to all and a Merry/Happy Christmas!

Today I’m spending the day at home – except possibly sushi in the evening – and I’m writing!

So:

I will write a short Christmas vignette in any setting of mine you’d like to see (or appropriate winter holiday) or to a (winter-holiday-themed) prompt of your choosing.

(If this floods me, I may end up writing these over the next week~ )

(Including during the Wednesday Write-a-thon)

Autumn at Christmas?  Winter Holidays in Reiassan, Tír na Cali, Vas’ World? Sure!  Space Mom Christmas?  I’ll manage something! Continue reading
