Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, August 4, 2009
This month's prompts came with an early surge and then a few later. The fishbowl started late because our Internet connection was out in the morning, but we managed to get someone to fix it that day. I started at 1:30 PM and continued until midnight; accounting for lunch and supper breaks, that's 9 1/2 hours. I wrote a total of 18 poems, mostly medium; there were a few short poems and only one epic-length poem. All of the poems this time were free verse except for one acrostic. Some used two or more prompts, others only one.

This time, 11 people sent prompts; but alas, there were no new prompters. (Those of you who are spreading the word about the fishbowls, please don't be discouraged and please do continue: repetition is the foundation of successful promotion.) There were 39 comments including mine.

EDIT 8/9/09: added poem and donor.
EDIT 8/10/09: added poem.
EDIT 8/11/09: added poems.

The following fishbowl poems have been published:
"The Activist After Death"
"Life Beyond Life"
"Life's Ledger"
"The Meaning of the Chain"
"A Moment of Maturity"
"Mother and Child(ren)"
"A Night's Courage"
"Ugly Ducklings"

There is no generally sponsored poetry poll planned as yet; so far the only donations have sponsored individual poems.

This month's donors include: ellenmillion, talix18, minorarchitect, and janetmiles. So far there are no first-time donors. I'll get a donor perk-post written presently.
