Poetry Fishbowl Report for July 6, 2021

Our theme this month was "Reality is stranger than fiction." I wrote from 1:15 PM to 6:30 AM, so about 16 hours 15 minutes, allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 3 poems on Tuesday and 10 later in the week.

Participation was similar, with 13 comments on LiveJournal and another 41 on Dreamwidth. A total of 16 people sent prompts.
