Let's here it for signal boosting. Inspired by a post on signal boosting the same by ysabetwordsmith
and spotting a mention of myself in a signal boosting post
), here are some recent things online I recommend checking.
Here is a summary page for aldersprig
's GenderFunk Giraffe Sale
) in which a call for writing prompts on, "a general theme of gender, sexuality, and how they go funky." Giraffe because any donations make will go towards purchasing awesome Giraffe print carpet.jeriendhal
has been doing writing to prompts as well. Here is a story about an aurora borealis
display causing complications for two of his characters, Tez and Maria. No prior knowledge of the setting or characters needed. Or for something chillier (that last line, ack!), one done to the prompt, Finding a babysitter in a post-apocalyptic world

Speaking of comics. There are 25 hours left to go in the Neotopia Collected Edition
kickstarter. Surely there have to be more Neotopia fans out there. A fun fantasy-steampunk story set 800 years in the future. Originally publised by Antarctic Press in 2003, this kickstarter project would see it brought back in print in a single volume.
Finally, an illustration by Meeks of a Molly and Hel
)lead me to the journal Wonder City Stories
which tells of life in a west coast city with a large superhero population. Many of the early posts are from the point of view of Megan, daughter of one of the world's best known super heroines, who isn't interested in becoming a hero herself and would love to escape her mother's shadow. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, I'm interested to see where it's headed.
