I am selling, and calling for prompts for, short stories. Further details at my journal.

Update! [personal profile] dialecticdreamer, as described in the comments or at her journal, is offering more words to the same money! Thank you, [personal profile] dialecticdreamer!

Special alert!

[personal profile] alexseanchai is hosting a fiction sale (approximately four cents per word, or roughly $14 per page, with the estimated average of 350 words), for a laudable goal. I'd like to do more than spread the word; I'd like to add to the words.

Give me a PM or reply to this post (ON MY BLOG) when you've made a donation, so I know how many words to write, AND give me a story prompt so I know what to write. You can be vague, or as specific as you like, but I generally write gentle fiction (no sex, minimal violence, lots of cuddling instead of arguing). No, it absolutely does NOT have to “match” or tie into whatever Alex is writing; they are creating the entree, while I am working on desserts.

Your copies are for personal reading, of course. They may be posted on my blog at a later time for others to enjoy as well, but they are paid for by donations to Alexseanchai. If you want a preview of their writing style, check out The Finch on the Apple Bough, a beautiful Cinderella story for the rest of us! To preview my style, well, scan my blog for the last three years; there's plenty of fiction to choose from!

Spread the word, put a little in [personal profile] alexseanchai's tip jar at Paypal, and let's make some summer reading!

Laughing. I woke up to this in my "inbox," and it's really made the morning already!

Yeah, don't sweat it. She, her, boring-old-cishet-female here. You have all the fun, and I just get to watch the parade every year! (Someday, the Pride Parade is going to become THE Parade, and every other one will have to specify themselves in comparison. That, actually, is my prompt!)

That reminds me of how all Schrodinger's Heroes have an afghan indicating their orientation, including Chris who is allocishet and was feeling left out. But there is a heterosexual flag too, pink and blue with a white heart.

Everyone should have a chance to celebrate who they are. I think in a healthier world, the old Gay Pride Parade would become a Self-Awareness Parade.

I just re-read it. I still love it!

I was just reading about the Stonewall riot, in a book written by a journalist who was involved in that community and interviewed as many people as possible at the time instead of five years later. That was... I don't want to ever go back to that kind of social isolation and denigration, NEVER.

Equality, and dignity, are BASIC human rights!
