Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - The Wordsmith's Forge

Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, October 7, 2014
This is catchup from what I missed earlier.

The theme for October was "mad science."  I worked from 1 PM to 4 AM, so about 13 hours allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  I wrote 11 poems on Tuesday and another 9 later in the week.  There were plenty of epics but a reasonable mix of shorter poems too.

Participation was okay.  We had 26 prompters making 38 comments on LiveJournal and 39 on Dreamwidth.  There were no new prompters.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, read the unsold poetry list from October 7.  (Not posted yet.)  That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems have been posted.  Prompters have their backchannel copies.  Per the $200 goal, "The Girl with the Hair That Would Not Be Tamed" is the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's one tally toward a bonus session.  Per the $300 goal, there was a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.

The donor perk has not yet been written.  The October donors included zianuray, marina_bonomi, janetmiles, DW user Dialecticdreamer, Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  There were no new donors.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
