Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 2, 2018

This month's theme was "Do you believe in magic?" I wrote from 12:30 PM to 5 AM, so roughly 14 hours 30 minutes allowing for breaks. I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 10 later.

Participation was enthusiastic, with 19 comments on LiveJournal and another 68 on Dreamwidth. A total of 26 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompter [personal profile] teigh_corvus, whom you can thank for the second freebie.

The Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so "Where Will All Come Home?" is the free epic. The fishbowl also made its $250 goal, so that's a second tally toward a bonus fishbowl.
