Project Updates - Torn World, Sketch Fest, EMG-Zine...

Torn World

While I was zombie-ing around this week looking for my brain, the paid LJ account for Torn World expired! Boo! Diapers are taking too much of my budget for me to simply donate that myself, but I'm willing to work for it... this is an updated list of the stories and poems I have available for sponsorship. A paid account for a year costs $25 - all sponsorships to that total will go 100% to cover a years worth of ad-free community costs! Many are also available for karma sponsorship (the awesome non-monetary currency at Torn World that you earn for submitting work or commenting), but those don't count towards the paid account.

With sponsorship of a story, you are listed as a patron (even when you 'sponsor' with karma) and the story becomes public for anyone to read. Show off your good taste by sponsoring your favorite topics, authors and stories. You can send me Torn World credits or karma at my Torn World member page, just let me know what it's for! And do consider subscribing at Torn World - you get access to ALL these stories and poems, as well as all the free material at the site, for as little as $5! It's a steal, AND you get $4 (of a $5 subscription) back to donate to the artists and authors YOU want to support.

You may also use the donate button at the bottom of the Torn World site, or use your EMG credits (from Sketch Fest, coloring books sales, etc.). Just let me know what you're sending funds for.

There is also a Muse Fusion this weekend! Look for our opening post shortly! I would love your prompts, as I feel creative enough to tackle some of them, and (knocks on wood) Elsa appears to be in a nappy mood today.

ETA: It's open now: - come leave prompts!


We're collecting work in the theme of 'Games' this month! Search your harddrives for artwork, stories or poetry with that topic and consider submitting it!

Check out May's issue, while you're there. :)

Sketch Fest

June 22-24 has pulled into the lead in our poll. I am tentatively planning a Sketch Fest that weekend!

(I got GOOD sleep last night, can you tell??)

Back to Best Baby.

I got THREE naps yesterday, one of them particularly good, and last night we got Very Good sleep - one block of 3 and a half hours! No diaper leaks, one false alarm, only one round of nursing and it was back to sleep every time, right away.

I was reading one of my baby books yesterday, and there was a section on 'Difficult Babies.' The first type of 'difficult baby' was: the Active Baby. It was like a checklist of Elsa, starting with wiggling in the womb, through sleeping less than other babies and being bright and alert most of the time. The biggest danger of an active baby is that they hurt themselves accidentally. I never, ever would have classified Guppy as a 'difficult baby,' not even yesterday morning, nor would I want her any other way.

Active baby is active!

Sketching for Muse Fusion now! Come leave me prompts!
