After a very mild winter, spring is breaking here in Oklahoma. Rain. Tree buds. Flowers. Children on temporary reprieve from classes. Allergies. Some crazy “spring forward” nonsense. It’s great. =)
A new update of The Journal 7 is available. See “The Journal News” below for more information.
This month’s tip tells you how to use the editor’s optional ruler, and we have a handful of new writing prompts that might or might not have anything to do with spring.

Welcome to February! Somewhere in my schooling I once read that February used to be known as “cabbage planting month.” I’ve never planted cabbage, so I don’t know if that’s true. Nor have I been able to verify (using Google) that any civilization or culture has ever, actually called February “cabbage planting month.” So I’m not sure if this a failure of my education, or a sign of latent creativity. =)

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
And since I’m combining the November and December newsletters, I would also like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! =)
Over this past weekend I learned, firsthand, why most people don’t make their own stuffing anymore. After baking the bread, turning the bread into croutons, and, finally, chopping veggies and turning the whole mess into stuffing (or “dressing,” as my mother calls it), I have to ask myself, “Will I ever do that again?” I probably will. But not tomorrow. In the spirit of the season, though, I would like to say I’m thankful it came out tasting great. =)
