There will be a bonus fishbowl on Tuesday, August 15 with a theme of "anything goes." Check your notes for whatever you wanted to prompt that hasn't matched a theme. Check your worthy causes and special interests for stuff I haven't covered yet that you would like to request. If you don't have ideas waiting, you can review your favorites and just name a character, setting, or storyline that you'd like to see more of -- I can supply more details from elsewhere. And I hope to see you tomorrow!

Some news:

1) The linkback poem is now live.  If you have linked to the fishbowl, please tell [personal profile] dialecticdreamer so she can post your verse(s).

2) My net connection is terrible today.  That makes writing very slow and limits my ability to do anything else, such as forward linkback claims.  Also, I may not be able to finish a prompt for every person, or I might need to tweak the fishbowl structure -- I have a lot of outside obligations at the end of this week and most of next.  I will keep you posted.  Sorry for the hassle.
