Greetings, Groovy People!

Jen needs to rejuvenate. So Pen and Prosper will be taking a spring break from 4/2 until 4/17 ish. ;-)

I'll be working on creative projects, more awesome content, my spring garden, kicking back with a few good movies and some herbal tea, and alas fitting into my skinny jeans by the time the warm weather is ushered in. :-)

Let's reconnect soon for National Poetry Month, where you'll get a rare glimpse of my first literary love, a contest or two, guest poets, and more ways to hone your craft and increase your cash.

I may check in (in the interim) to provide input on an occasional comment or two--so please leave them if you feel so inclined. :-)

And, here's your assignment: Let me know how I'm doing. What would you like to see more of? Less of? How can I make your Blog experience better.

I aim to please! :-)

Until we meet again...

    Thanks, Wendy! Will see you soon. :-)

  2. Have a wonderful break! I'm taking some time off too. But I'm not even talking about the skinny jeans...:P

    I like your blog the way it is; can't think of anything to change. If any brilliant ideas hit me, I'll let you know. :)

    Thanks, Karen. You certainly deserve a break. Glad you like the Blog as is, and your support supports this! :-)

  4. Have a wonderful time Jennifer :)

    Hi Dia,

    So good to hear from you! Thanks much for the thought. :-)

  6. Jen,
    Hope you are relaxing somewhere warm. You do deserve a break. Love tyour blog, always looking for places to submit, of course, but your blog is really comprehensive.

    I have been posting poetry on my blog. Tomorrow I am stepping out of my comfort zone and posting a poem that is not so pretty.

    Hi Linda,

    Glad to hear from you. Nope, it's not warm where I am, but I am basking in the "warm thoughts" from readers like you. :-)

    Not to mention, overdosing on herbal tea.

    Poetry is actually my "fisrt" literary love, so I'm excited about National Poetry month, and will surely be checking out your blog!

  8. Jennifer, I TOTALLY understand! I have hit the ground running in my new job this past month and have suffered in my own blogging! I am hoping to get a little better! But I understand! Have some great time off!

    New job? Congrats! How did I miss that? :-)
    Thanks for taking time from the hectic pace to stop by.
