Tuesday's fishbowl got off to a good start, and then prompts continued to trickle in through the day, which was really nice. I started at 11 AM and stopped at 9:45 PM when I was worn out writing, for a total of 8 hours 45 minutes given lunch and supper breaks. I wrote a total of 20 poems, mostly medium and long; no epics this time and very little on the short end. Usually when I write poems in the upper teens or beyond, it's because I'm getting a lot of short ones. There were several form poems, but more free verse. A fair number of poems combined multiple prompts.
This month 17 people sent prompts, which is the most ever, wow! 3 of those were first-time prompters: welcome to miintikwa, asakiyume, and marina_bonomi. Once again we had places where one person's prompt inspired another, as when newroticgirl and wyld_dandelyon set the stage for "The Forest Path." There were 54 comments including mine, also the highest ever, beating December 2008 by one.
