A Writing Index and Landing Page



Partway through 2011 I started semi-regularly writing short snippets of fiction, over time this has build up to where it can take a while to hunt down something I wrote previously. That calls for... An Index and Landing Page! I am putting this together initially as a single page. The remainder will likely soon go under a cut. Post-Dating to the end of 2013 to keep it at the top of the recent posts page. Indexes first, followed by a setting list.

30-Day Writing Projects:

  • Using Ravenswept's 30 Day list: LJ Link, (No DW copy currently)

  • Using Aldersprig and KC_Obrien's 30 Day list: LJ Link, DW Link



Prompt Calls:

11th-Sep-2016 10:59 pm - Thimble-Flash: Dark Horse
Writing, Fennec
Title: Retired
Fandom/'verse: Random science fiction setting, follows Coup Warning & Reasons
Summary: Lind's coup hasn't gone totally unnoticed by the outside world
Prompter: [personal profile] aldersprig's Thimbleful Thursday Prompt for 16 January 2015; Dark Horse

Note: Trying something new, going to see if I can link all five of January's prompts
Words: 355 (of a target 270-330 words, so a tad over goal)


Gavreel woke up before the sun as every morning. He saw the flashing light on his communications console and rejected the call before fixing a breakfast of filtered water and reheated vegetable stew. The farm had its own needs and he didn't have time to waste on his old life.

After a morning breaking ground for a new patch of beans he came inside for more water and fried oat cakes. A few key presses got rid of the blinking light once more.Click here to continue reading...Collapse )

It's been too long since the last prompt call so here is...

the Late April Early May Prompt Call

The theme: Alternatives

This prompt call's theme comes from [personal profile] rix_scaedu's suggestion, "If you have X, why do you need Y?" Feel free to interpret the theme as you wish, it should inspire you as well as inspiring me.

Prompts may be independent or draw on either of my uncompleted bingo cards:


The inevitable rules and guidelines:
  • I will pick a prompt from each prompter and write at least 100 words (seriously, I rarely write less than that, tiny flash is hard!). No guarantee of a full scene or story but prompts that catch my interest and inspire are likely to go further.

  • Fanfic prompts will likely be skipped in favor of others unless I'm familiar with the original.

  • Yes, prompts based on prior work of mine are quite welcome.

  • No porn requests please. A: I don't want to need to age-lock posts. B: You won't get much porn-with-plot in a few hundred words.

  • Each prompt should consist of:
    • A short sentence or phrase (and pointer to bingo card if drawing from one), and/or

    • A story or scene you'd like to see more of, and/or

    • A character you'd like to see more of

  • Prompts are free. (But I am open to paypal/word-count-bartering if you'd like to see more beyond the initial prompt response)

  • My out of date writing landing page

  • My writing tag to see previously posted work

  • (There is no ninth bullet point)

  • Bonus: I will add an extra hundred minimum words for prompters who haven't left prompts on previous prompt calls (minimum 200 words).

  • And I will do a second prompt for sharing a link to the prompt call.

  • There is no closing date at this time. When I pick a date to close the prompt call I will revise this page to list it here.

  • When the prompt call is closed I will add a note to that effect to the top of this entry.

21st-Mar-2016 11:21 pm - Prompt for prompts
Pithani the Librarian Mouse
So I just looked and saw it's been quite a while since I did a prompt call. Pondering it for the last several minutes I decided I would first open up for prompt call themes. So far I have a few but I'm interested to see what all of you would be interested in.

* Ambition
* Delusions
* Family
* Hubris
* Playing Roles

And given that I'm requesting themes expect a new prompt call soon.

15th-Feb-2016 04:27 am - Languary Day Ten: T-A-M
Pithani the Librarian Mouse
!markdown
Day ten, on which I had visited Wikipedia again and ponder the realms of Tense, Aspect, and Mood&Modality. Also (probably) second to last of the posts involving already prepared material, which would make it the second to last where the numbering is even vaguely connected to the date. Next post hopefully cleaned up and posted later today.

Next post will also have more sentences and vocabulary. Yay sentences and vocabulary. Yay for up too late silliness. Er, right, insert the cut and past in text...

Langifying under the cut...Collapse )

8th-Feb-2016 12:53 am - Languary: Days Eight & Nine
Pithani the Librarian Mouse
!markdown

Continuing my backlog of unposted days (which is rapidly running low)... As was pointed out in my prior post, Language + February also condenses to Languary, so word formation says I'm not late finishing Languary. (technically correct, the best kind of correct)

11th-Jan-2016 01:24 am - Languary Day Five: Diphthongs
Pithani the Librarian Mouse
!markdown
(Or yikes I need to get stuff typed up and posted)

###In Which I Add Some Diphthongs

Diphthongs, or as wikipedia tells us also called *gliding vowels*, were something I left for later on day three. Here are the put off decisions on dipthongs:

* A full dipthong should be pronounced with the length of a long vowel.
* A list of diphthongs (The "̯ " symbol says that the second vowel is not syllabic):
* au /aʊ̯/ as in loud or lout
* ai /aɪ̯/ as in high
* ou /oʊ/ as in goat or code
* ei /eɪ̯/ as in face or vein
* ? /ʌɪ̯/ as in light
* That ? is that I'm now trying to decide how to represent the ʌ, preferably with something that can be easily typed.
