Exciting news for IPYPIASMers

I can't believe it's not February!!!

So who has knocked me over the head and woken me up and suddenly told me it's November and not a dog in the house washed?!  (nor child neither)

Well it's nearly November, and getting perilously close to our favourite time of year - the most wonderful time, as I like to call it - otherwise known as International Put Your Poem in a Shop Month - or IPYPIASM!!!
 (say it backwards and it's MSAIPYPI - sinisterly close to mississippi)

Anyway - I can hardly host it this year, as you'll have noticed my average posting per month is coming in at a tidy sum of just the one.... (it's not that I don't love ye, I just literally have been repeatedly knocked over the head and whole chunks of life have disappeared on me, like dry ice in a moving train on a sunny saturday)

So, who can take the reins, who out there would be brilliant enough, super enough, enough of an IPYPIASMER of old to lead us into the new season - someone who has enthusiastically led the charge before in their area, a steady hand, who won't let it all go to their head.  It'd have to be someone in another country too, right?  I mean we're talking IPYPIASM, not NPYPIASM after all.

Yes, you've guessed it - the marvellous Titus the dog has agreed to host the Festival in it's fifth year... what a legend.

Her blog, for anyone crazy enough not to have been there previously is over here

Enjoy you crazy bunnies - I'll be hopefully enthusiastically partaking, in a shop near me, some time soon...

Thank you so much Titus!!


Titus said...

I am not worthy.

The Bug said...

Well I think Titus is worthy, but I would like to see more of you around here too :(

Niamh B said...

Comments!!! I remember those!!!

Yay - you are so worthy Titus, IPYPIASM is in safe hands and will be forever grateful to you for taking on this challenge.


Bug, I know, I wish I could be around more often too, it's just I have a job now that actually requires some work, and little fella keeps me so busy at home I haven't time to blink.. but it's all good. I love dropping into your blog when I am online though :-)

brilliant! Thanks Titus, this year I will do it, I will!

martine said...

Still gushing with writing enthusiasm after Nanowrimo I am going to try and contribute this time,
much love

I can't work out whether the fact that this borders on madness is the appeal or the fear! Bit a worthy leader in the fearless Titus:-!)

Misss you dear spiritual IPYPIASM leader!

Niamh B said...

Go on Words, I hope you do. And Martine!! It's the perfect seasonal activity!
Fun for all the family.
Louise - think the fear and the madness contribute together!
Oub I'm going to catch up over the hols deffo!!!
