Welcome to the fifty-eighth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, January 14-Sunday, January 15. The theme is "Laughter." Visit the Creative Jam over on LiveJournal.


Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

Cal and I have a new webserial!

MARKED follows the story of Nilien, a Wild Rune in an era where most Runes are created in the safety of the Academy.

But you can do more than follow, you can participate! Daily updates each lead to new polls where readers can decide names, details, and even what Nilien decides to do next!

Reading and voting is free, but pledging MARKED's Patreon gets you all kinds of extra content, from character bios to an in-world newsletter.

We just started last week, so it's still easy to get caught up!

Check it out~

People practicing cyberfunded creativity often need services that would be provided by a conventional business model but here must be either done personally or contracted with someone else, such as editing (for writers) or framing (for artists). What services do you offer that other folks might need?

My answer: I'm available for freelance writing and editing. I also offer advice on crowdfunding.

Hello, fellow artists!

Have you ever dreamed about getting out of crazy workday world with its boring rules and depressing atmosphere, because of which any creativity disappears? Do you want to enjoy creative space on the shore of a tropical sea and solitary or collaborative work and pastime? Then, the project of Sunland Art Colony is exactly what you need. Being initially launched by the same artist as you are, this project aimed to reach following goals:
- creating a place, where creative practitioners can work and live more freely, doing their artworks even better
- provide an atmosphere of creative interaction between artists
- enhance and contribute to the cultural life of the country - Cambodia and the city - Sihanoukville. If you're interested, please, find out more about the project here https://igg.me/at/sunland and join our FB group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1738348083149411/

It's time to discuss plans for the 2017 Rose & Bay Award season.  Check out the 2017 Landing Page.  Full details for the project appear on the landing page; you can ask here if you have any additional questions.

The categories are: Art, Fiction, Poetry, Webcomic, Other Project, and Patron.  These need volunteers to manage them, preferably someone who isn't eligible for nomination in that category.  This year I could be nominated for Fiction, Poetry, and Patron so those areas have the highest need for someone else to cover them.  Look on the landing page for details about becoming a category manager; it's pretty straightforward.

Nominations will be open from January 1-31, 2017 for crowdfunding projects active in 2018.  If that's you, please check your project to make sure it's clearly marked as crowdfunded, and give your audience some advance notice of this award.  If you've been running a free project and want to get involved, you still have plenty of time to post a tip jar for it or run a special paid session, etc. -- any kind of monetizing method is eligible.

Voting will be open from February 1-28, 2017.

Everyone can help by spreading the word about this award.  Post in blogs, communities, hub sites, etc. -- anywhere you think folks would like hearing about a crowdfunding award.

This community has a lot of talented members. If there's a service you need -- content submitted, fiction illustrated, writing edited, websites designed, etc. -- here's a chance to speak up. Maybe someone else in the community will have that skill. What do you need?

What are your planned crowdfunding projects for December? What did you accomplish during November?

There is no Creative Jam in December, to give folks a holiday break.  It will return in January!

Hello! I'm a composer, mostly of choral music. Some of it is religious, and some of it is secular; some accompanied, some not; some easy to sing, some more difficult.

You can listen to some of my music at this YouTube playlist of demo tracks; all of it can be downloaded in .pdf format from my page at the Choral Public Domain Library.

I use a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, or sometimes Attribution Non-Commercial if that's the license the author I'm working with wants to use. There are lots of reasons I do this, but the two big ones are that costs of sheet music can be prohibitive for choirs, preventing people with low incomes from performing new music; and that I would like my work to be freely available to others to use after my death, rather than fifty or seventy or howevermany years afterward.

For the last couple of years I've been using Patreon to crowdfund my composing. This is how I could afford to get the demo recordings made, and I can happily say it has been a positive experience for me.

I'm now doing a PhD in choral composition, and to do that I quit or took extended leave from my other paid work. The drop in income, and having to pay tuition fees, has come at a difficult time and I am struggling more than I thought I would. So I am having a November Patron Drive in order to broaden my support base. I've re-vamped my reward levels, and commissioned some artwork from an independent artist; all new patrons in November will receive a postcard, and there are options at various levels of support to receive postcards more regularly, too.

If you like my music and you're able to support me or publicise my November Patron Drive to your own networks, I'd appreciate that very much. I'm also interested in feedback about how to make a patron drive like this better -- what can you see that I'm doing that could be improved? What works well for you in your own crowdfunding if you do it? What doesn't?

Thanks for your time and your input.

Hello awesome people; I've been around here a very little bit before, but not in a long time.

I am currently doing a Tarot post on my journal, in preparation for setting up a site and trying to turn Tarot into a profession: free one-card draws, and half-price readings in exchange for testimonials.

I'm open til Tuesday morning, so if you're interested, please come take a look!

So for the rest of the month, I'm running a Irregular prompt call for the remainder of NaNo/Post-Election Poke-A-Bigot-in-the-Eye (on LJ)!

Come help me get old previous prompts and new prompts written.

New prompts are preferred to be "Poke a Bigot in the Eye" material featuring: some sort of minority characters, Nonviolent resistance, problems that can't be solved by hitting, and/or gentle/fluffy fiction. But I'm also open to using anything I've linked to on the post. :)

I'm doing a Patreon patron drive on Story Hospital, my advice column for writers! If I get to 50 patrons by the end of the month, I'll do four EXTRA posts in November, one per week, with advice specifically aimed at people who are doing NaNoWriMo. Writing 50,000 words in 30 days is a big challenge and I want to give those writers some support.

I'm totally fine with people signing up as patrons just for one month (though of course I hope you'll stick around!) and the minimum pledge is just $1 for the entire month. And if we make the goal, all the NaNoWriMo advice posts will be made public on the main Story Hospital site, though my patrons will get to see them early. So even if you can't chip in, feel free to subscribe to the site, ask a question or three, and share your favorite posts with your friends who write.

If you like the site and are interested in supporting it, please become a patron and/or spread the word about the patron drive. We've already gone from 39 to 45 patrons in just a few days, and I think we can make this happen!
