Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, January 6 - The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, January 6
This month our theme was "Earn Your Happy Ending."  I worked from 12:45 PM to 6:30 AM, so about 15 hours 45 minutes allowing for lunch and supper breaks.  I wrote 12 poems on Tuesday and another 7 later, with a variety of lengths.

Participation was up this month.  There were 56 comments on LJ and another 24 on DW.  A total of 26 people sent prompts.  Welcome new prompters DW user Curiosity, Martha Rochat, Andrea Rochat, and Ross Edwin Rochat.  You have them to thank for the second freebie.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the January 6, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"The Cure for Anything"

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, watch for the unsold poetry list from January 6.  That will include the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

Currently sponsored poems from the January 6 fishbowl have been posted.  Prompters have their backchannel copies.  Per the $200 goal, "Carnival Candy" was the free epic.  Per the $250 goal, that's three tallies, so there will be a bonus fishbowl in mid-February.  Per the $300 goal, there's a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.

The donor post has not yet been written.  This month's donors included DW user Chordatesrock, ng_moonmoth, janetmiles, Anthony and Shirley Barrette.  There were no new donors.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.

I was reading through the list when I noticed this:
"Difficult Measures"

Johan and Althey practiced
until the pudgy boy lay on the ground
panting with exhaustion.

"Why do even have to do this?"

Shouldn't it be:
"Why do I even have to do this?"

Just wondering...

You mentioned the half price sale in Polychrome Heroics, but on following the link it's closed. I'm guessing that was inadvertent.

Ideally I would've posted the report before the sale, but I've had so much else to deal with here, it's a cart before horse issue. Sorry about that. The sale page still has the links for all the sold-and-posted poems though.
