Poetry Fishbowl Report for September 2, 2014 - The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Poetry Fishbowl Report for September 2, 2014
Our theme this month was "Healing & Growth."  I worked from 12:30 PM to 5 AM, so about 14 hours 30 minutes allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  I wrote 11 poems on Tuesday plus 8 later.  These ran long.

The participation was good.  There were 60 comments on LJ and another 38 on DW.  A total of 25 people sent prompts.  Thanks to new prompters book_worm5 and DW user Pinkrangerv, you have a second freebie to enjoy, "The Seeds You Plant."

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the September 2, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the unsold poetry list from September 2. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems have all been posted.  The backchannel copies of others have gone to their prompters.  Per the $200 goal, "Interchange" is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's three tallies toward a bonus fishbowl.  It will feature P.I.E. on Tuesday, September 16.  Per the $300 goal, there will be a half-price sale in a series to be chosen next month.

The donor perk isn't written yet.  Donors this month included ng_moonmoth, janetmiles, marina_bonomi, technoshaman, Stephen Laird, and Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  By the way, this month raised the most funds in the Poetry Fishbowl thus far.  W00T!  That's enough to cover our regular monthly expenses for the household plus buying a couple of DVDs for us to enjoy.  *happydance*

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.

I'm pretty jazzed about this. And there is still a good chunk of unsold poetry, plus the bonus session coming up next week.
