Poetry Fishbowl Report for August 6, 2019

Our theme this month was "Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." I wrote from 1:15 PM to 6:15 AM, so about 15 hours allowing for breaks. I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 6 later.

Participation was enthusiastic, with 19 comments on LiveJournal and another 82 on Dreamwidth. A total of 24 people sent prompts. Please welcome new prompter [personal profile] alex_antonin, whom you have to thank for the second freebie.
