Plovember Prep and Preview


Have you seen the video of the dancing dog? If not, this is for you:

You’re welcome.

This is what it feels like just before Plovember, known more appropriately perhaps as Nano Poblano, or National Blog Posting Month. Some of my fellow peppers have a plan for this month (cue my loud, braying, New Jersey laughter): I do as well — to write each day, God willing, through the month.

We will begin with a trip down automotive memory lane for a few days; I had planned to do this for a different write-each-day-on-your-blog challenge, but alas … I  was a total shlub and didn’t do it was meant to wait until now.

Strap in and get ready … in two days, it’s happening here in the Cave. Hope you’ll take the ride with me again this year. Who knows where we’ll end up.

    LOL I love that film clip. I’ve seen it about a hundred times, but it never fails to make me smile.
    Sadly, I can’t join you in Nano Poblano, I’m on a final edit of my book before it goes to the “surgeon.” It’s been a long drawn out ordeal (and I do mean ordeal at times) but there’s light at the end of a very long tunnel 😀

      Oh, Lyn – I certainly understand! Can’t wait to hear more about your book after the surgeons 🙂

    That clip is so cute!

    My seatbelt is on, read to go! Vrooom vroom!

    I wrote up my plan too! Although offline, not online. 🙂

    Och so excited! I’ve been meaning to get back to WP and Plovember makes it so nice to do so!

    • AR Neal October 31, 2016 9:43 am

      Do join in! Yay – Plovember!
