Poetry Fishbowl Report for March 5, 2013
Our theme this month was "houses & homes."  I worked from 11:30 AM to 2 AM, so about 12 hours 30 minutes, allowing for breaks.  Prompts were slow to come in, but picked up eventually and maintained through most of the day.  I wrote 23 poems on Tuesday and 1 more later.

There was only one form poem this time.  Most of the poems were combinations of two or three prompts.  There were two size clusters at medium-long and epic ranges.

Activity was down on LiveJournal (42 comments) and up on Dreamwidth (21).  A total of 23 people sent prompts.  Please welcome new prompters polydad, rosieknight, and DW user adeliej.  You have them to thank for the second freebie.

This fishbowl is sold out.  Woohoo!  The linkback poem "Carrying the Sea and the Sky" (A Conflagration of Dragons) has 11 of 20 verses posted.  You can reveal more by linking to your favorite poems from this fishbowl.

All currently sponsored poems have been posted.  Per the $200 goal, "Cricket and the Magic Kung Fu Water" (Kung Fu Robots) is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's a second tally toward a bonus fishbowl.  Per the $300 goal, there will be a half-price sale in Fledgling Grace, based on an audience poll.  The sale will run from March 18-24.

I still need to write the donor perk-post.  Donors this month include: technoshaman, laffingkat, janetmiles, rix_scaedu, Shirley and Anthony Barrette, and the_vulture.  Thank you all for your support and enthusiasm.

I was looking for the Itadesh-rebuilding poem - did that get missed from this list? (And, submit it to the site! :))
