Poetry Fishbowl Report for October 4, 2016

Our theme this month was "monsters." I worked from 12:30 PM to 4 AM, so about 13 hours 30 minutes accounting for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 7 poems on Tuesday and 11 later on.

Participation was quite enthusiastic, with 34 comments on LiveJournal and another 69 on Dreamwidth. A total of 23 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompters [personal profile] callibr8 and LJ user John_palmer; you have them to thank for the extra freebie.
