Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 8, 2019

This session's theme was "That's not a mistake!" I wrote from noon to 5:45 AM, so about 15 hours 45 minutes, accounting for breaks. I wrote 9 poems on Tuesday and another 6 later. I also lost a lot of time for various reasons, so I haven't gotten through all the prompts. I'll try to catch up later if I have time.

Participation was a bit lower, with 16 comments on LiveJournal and another 52 on Dreamwidth. A total of 27 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompter [personal profile] iamnotgod.
