Updated Frequently (Hopefully)

Squirt, my sick feline friend, is continuing to improve. She is already a lot more energetic and alert than she was. Of course, this also means she is energetic enough to make giving her the medicine interesting. I think it is mostly the messing with her mouth that she doesn't like.

A heartfelt and grateful thank you to everyone who donated toward her vet bill and expressed well-wishes and prayers. They were all very much appreciated. Thank you.

Just in case anyone was curious, Squirt is an 11-year-old domestic shorthair. She is black and white in patches, like a Holstein dairy cow. I adopted her as a kitten when my dad found her after her mother had either abandoned her or had died.

She was tiny so I started calling her a little squirt and it soon stuck. She apparently likes that name because any attempt to change it has meant with abject failure.

Squirt is an indoor kitty and seems to prefer seeing the great outdoors from the window to experiencing it directly.

Once again, thank you everyone for your help.

Last night my feline friend Squirt start getting sick and today we had to take her to the vet. They gave her some antibiotics and some fluids but are also running some blood work to make sure it isn't something more serious. She is perking right up so fingers crossed.

But as most of you know, the vet isn't cheap and unfortunately we don't have a lot of money. We paid the current bill but that does leave us flat broke until payday and w
e are tapping the relatives to get through until then. But if she needs anything further, I won't be able to pay for it.

I would be extremely grateful for anything you all could kick my way. If all you've got are well-wishes for Squirt, that's cool.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


UPDATE 8/5/2016: Squirt is continuing to perk up and her lab work came back all good. So looks like she needs is this course of antibiotics. So yay!

 While looking at someone's tumblr feed, I found some pretty pictures of ladies with butterfly and moth wing fashions. And I just had to save and share those pictures into the Tsubasa inspiration folder. Plus who knows what else this might inspire. Check it out.

THANK MUSE IT'S FRIDAY OPEN!

Thank Muse It's Friday is now closed for prompts. Thanks to everyone who participated. I'm still working on your pieces and I will send them to you as soon as I'm done writing them and doing one last check for errors.

What is Thank Muse It's Friday?

In a similar vein to ysabetwordsmith's Poetry Fishbowl, Thank Muse It's Friday is a prompt-and-writing session. It is one part writing exercise, one part audience builder, and hopefully one part money maker.

This month the theme is “I Need A Hero.”

How does it work?

It's very easy. Leave me a prompt or prompts in the comment section below. I'll pick one and give you some words in the form of a poem, prose, or demi-fiction. Primarily I use the PM system here on Dreamwidth for that but that is not avaliable or not working for some reason, I will e-mail it to you. I promise not to keep anyone's e-mail address afterward.

The prompt call lasts at least twenty-four hours from time of first posting at about 8 AM US Eastern Time on 7/29/2016.

Which universes to I do write in?

{A} I have a number of imaginary friends who are hoping for some time on stage in front of a non-me audience. Prompts that don't specify a setting will feature one of them.

{B} So far my original series include: 'Ohana, about an interracial cross-orientation polyfamily, the Garden which features the larger community that 'Ohana live in (currently listed with 'Ohana), and the newest Capes and Masks, a superhero setting.

{C} The Berettaflies thread for Polychrome Heroics.

{D} I'm open to writing fiction or demi-fiction for Ysabetwordsmith or Dialecticdreamer's open settings. The resulting pieces will be sent to them as well as the prompter since it is their sandbox.

{E} Fan Fic prompts are also welcomed. I have too many fandoms to list here. Ask anyway and if's not one I've seen/read, I'll need either a good premier and some extra time or an alternative. We'll work it out.

The Theme

As aforementioned, this month's theme is “I Need A Hero.”

I'm soliciting ideas for superheroes, superheras, capes of no particular or both genders, ethical supervillains, ordinary folks doing heroic things, everyday heroes, doing the right thing, standing up for others, standing up for yourself, saving the world, saving others, saving yourself, and anything else that fits the theme.

Anything else?

{1} For the first time, I'm set up for donations. Note that donations are NOT required nor is any particular amount. But any funds you want to kick my way are very much appreciated.









 

{2} I'd still like constructive feedback. It is not required but appreciated since one of the points of these sessions is to improve and expand my writing skills.

{3} Signal boosting is also very much appreciated.

{4} Please let me know if you have donated or boosted the signal or both because you have earned yourself a second prompt fill.

{5} To help prevent me from missing anyone and keeping track of needed thank yous for signal boosts and such, I make a list of prompts, boosters, etc. If I managed to miss you despite this precaution, please send me a message.

Poem: Freedom

by shiori_makiba / Ashley Weyer

Word Count: 52 words in 10 lines


An attempt at writing tanka.


“Freedom”

Freedom, it was

something different to

many people.

It could be a grand thing.

It could be a small thing.


Size did not matter.

It was not the important

thing to freedom.

It was choice that mattered.

Having it and making it.

Poem: Surprise

by shiori_makiba

I missed prompting and signal boosting for Magpie Monday so I wrote a quick gift poem for [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. Which she requested that I post to the blog so here it is.


“Surprise”


Something happens, it is

Unexpected but sometimes that is a

Really good thing. It could be

People you have missed calling out of the blue or

Receiving a 'just because' gift. Or

It could be something nice done just to see you

Smile. And

Everyone deserves to smile.

Thank Muse It's Friday Open!

Thank Muse It's Friday is now closed! Thank you everyone for participation.

What I am babbling about again?

In a similar vein to ysabetwordsmith's Poetry Fishbowl and dialecticdreamer's Monday Magpie, Thank Muse It's Friday is a prompt-and-writing session. I'm doing this as a writing exercise to expand my skills as well as build an audience.

The theme is “Friendship is Magic.”

How it works?

It's very easy. Leave me some suggestions in the comment section below, I'll pick one and give you some words in the form of a poem, prose, or demi-fiction via PM or e-mail if the PM doesn't work for some reason. I will not keep your e-mail address afterward in those cases.

The prompt call lasts for twenty-four hours from the time of first posting. This session was opened at 04:00 PM 6/17/2016 US Eastern Time Zone and therefore will close at 4:00 PM 6/18/2016. I cannot promise that all prompts will be filled within that time frame but trust that they will be filled as fast as I can.

Which universes do I write in?

{A} I have a number of imaginary friends who are hoping for some time on stage in front of a non-me audience. Prompts that don't specify a setting will feature one of them.

{B} So far my original series include: 'Ohana, about an interracial cross-orientation polyfamily, the Garden which features the larger community that 'Ohana live in (currently listed with 'Ohana), and the newest Capes and Masks, a superhero setting.

{C} The Berettaflies thread for Polychrome Heroics.

{D} I'm open to writing fiction or demi-fiction for [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith or [personal profile] dialecticdreamer's open settings. The resulting pieces will be sent to them as well as the prompter since it is their sandbox.

{E} Fan Fic prompts are also welcomed. I have too many fandoms to list here. Ask anyway and if's not one I've seen/read, I'll need either a good primer and some extra time or an alternative. We'll work it out.

Anything else?

{1} Currently, I'm not asking for donations. What I'm asking for is prompts, constructive feedback, and signal boosts. You don't have to do any of those but I really appreciate it if you would.

{2} The results of one prompt will be posted up on the blog for everyone to enjoy after the prompters have gotten their pieces. It may be one of those pieces or an extra one from an extra prompt.

{3} To help prevent me from missing anyone and keeping track of needed thank yous for signal boosts and such, I make a list of prompts, boosters, etc. If I managed to miss you despite this precaution, please send me a message.

{4} Signal boosters are guaranteed a second prompt fill so let me know that you have boosted the signal, please.
