Totally unscientific survey about crowdfunding artists. The OP's husband is exploring the Patreon model as a potential income stream.

I will be opening a one-day Giraffe Call (fiction prompt call) from 9 p.m. Eastern time Sunday 6/26 to 9 p.m. Monday the 27th.

Prompting is free (the theme poll is open now & will stay open at least until 9 tomorrow night) and I will write at least 1 flash-fiction story or beginning to the first 12 prompters.

Extra stories, longer stories, and more days of the prompt call can be earned:

* By being a new prompter or your signal boost bringing in someone new
* By being a new follower of my Dreamwidth or Livejournal ([livejournal.com profile] aldersprig) blogs
* By becoming a patron of my Patreon.
* By tipping/commissioning more words.

Currently, "Green Thumbs", "When the best answer is FIRE", and "Summer ritual celebrations" are in a 3-day tie for the first day's theme. Go check it out and vote!

I have opened up feedback on my two potential upcoming serials:

Working-joke-title Steam!Goats (A steampunk setting in a universe featuring goats as a primary mode of transportation) - A boarding-school story involving steam, magic, and teenagers.
Question post here.

Working-joke-title With a Gladiator on Top (A kink setting still very up in the air)
Question Post here

The questions, in short:
What are the top three things you'd like to see in such a serial?

What would you LEAST want to see in that story?

What setting would you like for such a story?

An aspect of crowdfunding has been suggested as a way to draw revenue for Dreamwidth, which would also reward bloggers for producing popular content.  I would REALLY like to see this implemented.  Please go vote for this!

Previously the idea of a broad-focus creative jam was proposed and then discussed further.  I've posted a poll over on the LiveJournal community Crowdfunding.  I wanted to post a poll here too, but the DW poll engine only allows 10 items and we've got 15 themes.  So hopefully folks here will vote on LJ -- that's where most of the conversation is and many DW members also have LJ accounts.

 Today [personal profile] ellenmillion is asking folks to vote for Torn World on Top Web Fiction.  Reviews and ratings over on Web Fiction Guide also help; you can read my review of Torn World there.
