This month's theme was "tactile emphasis." I worked from 11:45 AM to 6 AM, so about 15 hours 45 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 8 poems on Tuesday and another 13 later in the week.
Participation was enthusiastic, with a whopping 88 comments on LJ and 52 more on DW. Folks got into some fascinating conversations about the prompts and characters. There were 3 new prompters, whom you have to thank for the extra freebie.
