Poetry Fishbowl Report for February 5, 2013
This month's theme was "mature and old adults."  A significant number of the poems had tragic or poignant tones, although others were lighter.  I worked from 11:45 AM to 2:15 AM, so about 12 hours 30 minutes allowing for the usual breaks.  It took a little while for the prompts to start, then they stayed at a steady trickle for a while.  I wrote 18 poems on Tuesday plus another 3 later.

There were several form poems this time.  Most poems had small combinations of prompts, a few singles or stacks.  Size was spread across all categories, though leaning medium to long with a good number of epics.

Activity was okay, with 45 comments on LJ and another 5 on DW.  There were no new prompters, though.

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 February. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available. The linkback poem "Alien In-Laws" (Starfather) has 9 of 22 verses posted.  You can reveal more by linking to the unsold poetry post, or to your favorite poems from this fishbowl. 

The currently sponsored poems have been posted.  I've sent copies of the rest to their respective prompters.  Per the $200 goal, "The Demon in the Clockwork" is your free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's one tally toward a bonus fishbowl.  Per the $300 goal, there is bonus material for A Conflagration of Dragons.  Read about "The Six Races: An Overview."  General fund polling is done. 

I still need to do the donor perk-post.  Donors this month include: technoshaman, Stephen Laird, aldersprig, the_vulture, janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette, and rix_scaedu.  After the fishbowl tally officially closed, I also got donations from tabard and moonwolf1988.  Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm!

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
