Three Annoying Things That Start With "P"

I was working on a blog post last night when the power went out. It would have been a great post. At least, I think it would have been. But I can't be sure.

You see when the power goes off here, I'm never quite sure when it will come back on. So I close up my computer to conserve the battery just in case we have an outage that lasts longer than a few hours.

When the power did come back on and I opened my laptop back up, the post had vanished, along with any desire to try to recreate it.

So instead you get this sub-par post about three things that start with the letter "P" that bug me.

1 - Power outages - No surprise there.

2 - Plot holes - I'm battling a multitude of these in my current work-in-progress.

3 - Punctuation - Specifically hyphens. I never know where to put them, so-I'm-just-going-to-start-putting-them-everywhere.

And now for an apology. I've been so busy lately with #2 on my list and trying to get Bodies in the Boatyard ready to sent out to beta readers that I've been TERRIBLE at replying to blog comments and visiting all of you lovely people on your blogs. Hopefully, things will get less busy here in a week or so and things will return to normal.

What are your favorite things that start with "P"? Least favorite ones?


  1. Sorry you lost your post.
    Favorite things? Pantera and pizza!

  2. Pokey drivers annoy me. If you see a maroon colored Sante Fe Unlimited in your review mirror, just get out of my way.

    1. I'm a total pokey driver. I'll keep an eye out for your car behind me :-)

  3. Pasta is a favorite thing.

    Yacht Club parties are fun too.

    Pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

  4. How annoying about the post! Favourite P - Pasta. Or more specifically pasta sauces. So versatile. Nightmare P - pedants. My husband is a pedant. Drives me nuts sometimes. He'd definitely be able to tell you where to put your hypens lol

  5. Favorites: puppies, ponies and patience; annoying: pains, poisons, plugs (for products)
    parents with annoying pesky brats.

  6. Real life comes first, especially when you are a writer and you are getting a really and truly book ready. It’s great to see you when you can come by, and understood when you can’t.

  7. Some people are bloggers who happen to write, and some are writers who happen to blog. You, my dear, have become the latter. No need to apologize for it. Enjoy!

  8. Ugh, that really sucks. Sorry you lost your post. That's happened to me with super-long emails, and it's so disheartening.

    Favourite things? Penguins. Pickles. Pizza. Perogies. Peonies (until they lose all their petals in five minutes). Petunias. Passion. Potatoes. Poutine. Pasta. Platypus(es?)

    Least favourite: Pimples. Procrastination. Platitudes. Parsnips. Pettiness.

    1. I love peonies! We used to grow them. So beautiful and they smell so wonderful. I've never had poutine. I must remedy that one day.
