Sabbatical & An Honor

Hi Y’all!

Yes, I’ve been absent from Jilly’s for a few weeks and I want to express my appreciation to all who have been in touch.  January turned out to be a month of bugs – both viruses and editing bugs struck.  I took some time off to drink lots of hot tea and really dig into some writing and editing projects that have been calling my name.  It has been a very fruitful time.

I would like to mention two things:

Firstly, the February Edition of Casting Bricks did not happen during the course of my off time.  I may make some changes to our collaborative poetry challenge, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know!

I would also like to let you all know that my poem, Fervency, which posted here in November, was selected as the Second Place Winner of the January Contest over at Vita Brevis!

I mentioned above that I have spent some time in the editing process recently.  Fervency was poem that went through a good deal of editing, with the help of a couple of good friends in the WP community.  It is a pleasure to work with fellow poets in the writing process.  Thank you!

Jilly 🙂
