Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 22, 2019

This time our theme was "Polychrome Heroics: Shiv: The Christmas Thread" with a few prompts carried over from the January 8 fishbowl. I wrote from 1 PM to 5:15 AM, so about 14 hours 15 minutes, accounting for breaks. I'm still not really caught up, but at least I'm getting closer.

Participation was lower, with 9 comments on LiveJournal and another 43 on Dreamwidth. A total of 18 people sent prompts. Some of those stacked very nicely, so big thanks to the people who seconded other people's prompts. \o/

Read Some Poetry!
The following poems from the January 22, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl have been posted:
"Bedtime Rituals"
"So Many Notes and Colors and Flavors"
"Waves of Emotion"

Note that "So Many Notes and Colors and Flavors" has been opened for microfunding with general funds earmarked for poems from this session. It's more than a third sponsored, so if you want more poetry and can't afford a whole one, this is a great opportunity. It's mostly fluff about Shiv and Heron comfort-baking.

Buy some poetry!
If you plan to sponsor some poetry but haven't made up your mind yet, see the unsold poetry list from January 22. That includes the title, length, price, and the original thumbnail description for the poems still available.

The sponsored poems have all been posted. Donors this time include: [personal profile] wispfox, [personal profile] fuzzyred, [personal profile] technoshaman, and [personal profile] gingicat.

The Poetry Fishbowl also has a permanent landing page.
