There was one new prompter this time, Stephen Laird. You have him to thank for the extra freebie. Special thanks to minor_architect for handling the linkback poem; "Beggars' Night" (Monster House) has been reposted on my blog. It's not complete yet, so you can still reveal verses by linking to a specific poem from this fishbowl or to the unsold poetry list. Thanks also to my_partner_doug for managing the ticker.
We reached the $200 goal for an extra series fishbowl ... and, well, oops. I should've offered a different incentive this month, because I'm not going to be very available for a sizable chunk of time, and most other folks are busy with holiday stuff as well. So I'm going to shift the bonus to mid-January, and I'll offer you some other perk if the January fishbowl also sells well.

Buy Some Poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the list of unsold poems from December 6, 2011. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available. The currently sponsored poems have all been posted. I've sent backchannel copies to the prompters. The generally sponsored poetry poll is still open; I expect to close that tonight.
The donor perk-post is "Creating Sensation." The December donors include: idhren24, Stephen Laird, janetmiles, marina_bonomi, the_vulture, Anthony Barrette, and Shirley Barrette.
The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
