Welcome to the forty-sixth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, November 14-Sunday, November 15. The theme is "Books." 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.

The last prompt about not annoying the author inspired this:

“Why We Don't Annoy The Author”

Alien reading a book turned into "Stories". This one was sent PM so you could read it first.

The first set are tossed out to [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, as a carry-over from her recent Monday Magpie story/stories within the palimpsest world of "Sunday Afternoon." But they're also free to anyone else to write completely new work, into something entirely different [/Monty Python voice]

Words:

Flights of fancy, now boarding.

The rustle of pages, like the rustle of wings.

"Let me take you on a journey..."

This next set are just wisps of things that float through my head, and come to my attention, sometimes:

Words
Once upon a time, like a ship upon the sea...

Stories are to the mind as food is to the body. Books are to stories as refrigerators are to food.

Conversations across time, through the notes in the margins.

Your prompt about flights of fancy inspired the poem "Amazing." I will post it to my blog sometime during the next week but I figured that you should get to see it first so I sent you a PM with it.

I saw that! It's a lot of fun. :-)

Would you welcome some beta comments, and if so, how much?

Thank you

>>Would you welcome some beta comments, and if so, how much?>>

I always welcome beta comments. How else I am supposed to improve without constructive criticism? And its usually easier for someone else to notice your typos than yourself. So as long as you are polite about it, beta away!

"If it wasn't written down, it never happened." —anonymous, afaik

"When an elder dies, a library burns." —I think I'm misquoting an African proverb? hang on—it's a misquote of Amadou Hampâté Bâ, a Malian writer and ethnologist, so it may well be a Malian proverb

"He kept a careful chronicle, transcribing what he heard
"Of the tribe's entire language, there remained just forty words
"Complexity and structure, how it tastes and how it sings
"Time devoured all but scattered words for scattered things"

"Until the lion has his or her own storyteller, the hunter will always have the best part of the story." —Ewe-mina (Benin, Ghana, and Togo) Proverb

All prompts are quotes about books from a quotes page that sounded interesting.

"I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage."
-Charles De Secondat (1689 - 1755)

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers."
-Charles W. Eliot (1834 - 1926), The Happy Life, 1896

"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
-Attributed to Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC)

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."
-Groucho Marx (1890 - 1977)

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint."
-Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

I'm late, but hopefully not too late.

*Sentient bookworms! There are mostly friendly ones, but possibly also mean ones, in some library somewhere?
