Poetry Fishbowl Report for December 4, 2012

This month's theme was "games and toys." I worked from 12:30 PM to 3:30 AM on Tuesday, plus a little more later in the week. That's about 13 hours, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. Prompts trickled in slowly at first, then gained momentum, and trailed off later in the day. I wrote 24 poems on Tuesday, plus another 5 later on. I had several form poems in the mix, a balance of single and combined prompts, and a very wide spread across all size ranges.

Activity was good this month, with 59 comments on LiveJournal and 11 on Dreamwidth. Please welcome new prompters [personal profile] elliemurasaki, [personal profile] cadenzamuse, and LiveJournal user peteralway. You have them to thank for the extra freebie poem.

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. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

The currently sponsored poems are all posted. I've sent prompter copies backchannel. Per the $200 goal, there will be a free epic chosen in this poll.  The general fund poll is also running.  Per the $250 goal, that's a second tally toward a mid-month fishbowl. Per the $300 goal, you get a free piece of bonus material. I still need to write the donor perk-post.

Donors this month include [personal profile] catsittingstill, [personal profile] rix_scaedu, [Unknown LJ tag] janetmiles, laffingkat, Anthony and Shirley Barrette. Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
