Week End Wrap Up!

Ah...October. Can't you feel the cool breeze, the beauty of the changing leaves, the less frantic pace?

Where did the year go, right? lol

Before we "officially" transition into the next and final quarter of the year, I just wanted to chat with you to share things of potential interest and importance.

First and foremost, here's a "shout-out" to all my new followers! So happy to have you here. Welcome to the Pen and Prosper community. I've got a great, diverse group assembled, and I hope you feel inspired to join the conversation, or pose a question, as the situation dictates.

September actually saw the greatest month of followers at one time: I had eight new people. (This is really WAY cool, in that I took a 2 week vacation break, and did not post as often). Bravo and many thanks!

If anyone would like to introduce him/herself, tell us a little about who you are, and how you heard about Pen and Prosper, that would be awesome! We'd love to hear from you.

September was also a great month for guest posting. I had loads of fun and connected with quality readers at the following sites:

As always, I appreciate your thoughts and your time.

Additionally, I sold a piece to a market that I have been trying to break in for about 5 years! Perseverance pays. Details and link later.

I even had an interview posted at Marcie Writes. (Thanks, Marcie).
