Poetry Fishbowl Report for November 6, 2018

Our theme this month was "Family of Choice." I wrote from 1 PM to 5 AM, so about 14 hours, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 6 poems on Tuesday and another 23 later on.

Participation was considerably higher, with 19 comments on LiveJournal and another 77 on Dreamwidth. Please welcome new prompters Soupshue and [personal profile] fuzzyred, whom you have to thank for the second freebie. I'll need to post that later.

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the November 6, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"Confused, Screwed Up, But Here"
"A Corresponding Clarity of Purpose"
"Emptier of Bad Thoughts"
"From This Intolerable Overload of Feeling"
"His Family's His Crew"
"The Lair of the Dragon Scouts"
"Merely an Exaggeration"
"A Purrfect Family"
"Reconciled Differences"
"Unless You Let Us Know You're Down There"
"Wabbit Season"

"Under a Blood-Red Moon" (standalone, October 2, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl) (linkback perk)
"On the Crust of an Unfinished Planet" (Polychrome Heroics: The Big One, Mercedes, October 2, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl) (free epic)
"The Tree of Damocles" (outside fishbowl)

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, watch for the unsold poetry list from November 6. That will include the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

I have posted all the poems sponsored during the fishbowl. Donors this time include [personal profile] fuzzyred, [personal profile] satsuma, [personal profile] janetmiles, and Anthony & Shirley Barrette. There were no new donors. Per the $200 goal, "On the Crust of an Unfinished Planet" is the free epic. Per the $250 goal, that's two tallies toward a bonus fishbowl. Per the $300 goal, we had a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
