Veteran's Day & Monday Morning Announcements

Pen and Prosper wishes to take this opportunity to recognize and remember those who have served in battle to protect the rights and freedoms of this country.
To them we owe a debt that can never fully be repaid.

Announcements...

Blog Break---Due to the upcoming holiday and related preparations, I will be taking a break from November 13th-November 24th. Though I'll miss you guys, I really need it. :-) Please feel free in the interim to leave any comments or questions, as I will periodically be checking in for anything interesting.

Contest Winners---As I now have all the contact info from winners of our recent "Chocolate" contest, I will be sending out prizes during my blog break. Thanks again, to all who entered. Stay tuned for more contests, fun stuff, and cool events in the upcoming months.

Coffeehouse for Writers---If one of your goals this year is to hone your craft and increase your cash, signing up for a class at Coffeehouse for Writers is the "write" move! Classes start this week. Due to site construction under way, if you have difficulty registering for a class, or paypal glitches, please send an email to Coffeejens@gmail.com for assistance.

Write to Done Sponsors its 7th Annual Top 10 Writing Blogs Contest---This competition is one of the most prestigious and most popular in the blogosphere! And I'd love your vote. If you have found this Blog to be a benefit in any way, (and you're not able to send chocolate to show appreciation), I'd certainly accept your nomination in lieu of. :-) Please remember to convey Why you wish to nominate Pen & Prosper, and the link, in order to have a valid entry.

...And in closing, I would like to share, that as I prepare to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday season, I count each and every one of you among my blessings. Thanks so much for your readership, faithful follow and avenues to learn, teach, and grow. :-) You are appreciated!

  3. Yes, I also believe that frequenly taking breaks, or taking time to relax is important for being able to keep getting fresh ideas, as you can see Ray Bradbury did when writing Short Stories
