Poetry Fishbowl Report for June 5, 2018

Our theme this month was "This is NOT what I signed up for!" I wrote from 12:30 PM to 5:30 AM, so about 15 hours allowing for breaks. I wrote 9 poems on Tuesday and another 6 later.

Participation was much lower, with comments 17 on LiveJournal and another 36 on Dreamwidth. A total of 18 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters.
