Poetry Fishbowl Report for October 2, 2018

This month's theme was "If you're going through hell, keep going!" I wrote from 1:15 PM to 6:45 AM, so about 15 hours 30 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 5 poems on Tuesday and another 7 later on.

Participation was modest, with 15 comments on LiveJournal and another 56 on Dreamwidth. Please welcome new prompters Senõr Tequila and Hope, whom you have to thank for the second freebie.
