Poetry Fishbowl Report for April 7, 2015
This month's theme was "language shaping thought." I worked from 12:30 PM to 4:30 AM, so about 14 hours 30 minutes, allowing for breaks. I wrote 15 poems on Tuesday and another 9 later.

Participation was good, with 27 prompters on LiveJournal and 50 on Dreamwidth. A total of 20 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompters [personal profile] moongoddessgirl and [personal profile] kiramaru7. You have them to thank for the second freebie.

Interesting, more on Dreamwidth... and if memory serves, the combined numbers are a rather big jump year-over-year in your audience?

My DW audience has grown. My LJ audience sometimes still plays more, but no longer does so all of the time.
