Poetry Fishbowl Report for December 4, 2018

This month's theme was "Alternate Realities." I wrote from 1:30 PM to 5:30 AM, so about 14 hours allowing for breaks. I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 10 later.

Participation was a little lower, with 17 comments on LiveJournal and another 54 on Dreamwidth. A total of 22 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompters Hikaru and [personal profile] louisadkins, whom you have to thank for the second freebie, "Holiday in Handcuffs."

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, see the unsold poetry list from December 4. That includes 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] satsuma, [personal profile] fuzzyred, [personal profile] ng_moonmoth, Sarah Elkins, [personal profile] janetmiles, Anthony & Shirley Barrette. Please welcome new donor Sarah Elkins, whom you have to thank for the second freebie. Per the $200 goal, "Whatever You Seek" is the free epic. Per the $250 goal, that's three tallies toward a bonus fishbowl, which will happen in mid-January.

The Poetry Fishbowl project also has a permanent landing page.
