Poetry Fishbowl Report for September 18, 2012
The theme of the mid-month fishbowl was "Monster House."  I worked from 12:30 PM to 3 AM, so about 12 hours 30 minutes allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  There was a slow trickle of prompts through much of the day.  I wrote 16 poems, most from single prompts but a few mixed.  Almost all the poems were free-verse.

A total of 13 people sent prompts, which is low, but actually one higher than the main fishbowl this month.  Please welcome new prompter DW user jb_slasher, whom you can thank for the second freebie poem.  There were 37 comments on LJ and 6 on DW, not much crosstalk.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the September 2012 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"Dissonance and Consonance"
"Education Is a Matter of Perspective"
"It Comes First and Follows After"
"Learning at the Wheel"
"Literally and Figuratively"
"Making Believe"
"Making Friends"
"Muddled Up"
"Patching Up"
"Personal Histories"
"Pest Control"
"Talk Like ..."
"Unspoken Noise"
"Whatever We Feed"

The mid-month fishbowl has SOLD OUT.  This is the first time that has happened.  Donors for this session include: zianuray, janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  The linkback perk poem "Alone in the Bee-Loud Glade" (Hart's Farm) is complete.  Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
