Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, November 4, 2014

This month's theme was "winning without defeating anyone."  I worked from 1 PM to 2:15 AM, so about 11 hours 15 minutes allowing for breaks.  Going out to vote kind of ate most of my spoons for the day, so you can see the lower activity, although I did manage to write at least one poem per prompter later in the week.  There were 8 poems from Tuesday and another 10 later, a majority of them epics.

Participation was pretty good.  We had 42 comments on LJ and another 39 on DW.  Thanks to new prompters DW user Madgastronomer and Readera, you have a second freebie, "Without Spilling a Drop."

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 November 4. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

All currently sponsored poems have been posted.  The backchannel copies of others have gone to their prompters.  Per the $200 goal, "Of Restful Inclination" is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's two tallies toward a bonus fishbowl.  Per the $300 goal, there will be a half-price sale in Frankenstein's Family from Nov. 17-23.

The donor perk has not yet been written.  This month's donors include janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  Thank you all for your support.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
