Life, ROW80, and WIPpet Wednesday
Since Saturday, my husband has been home (took time off from work for a stay-cation). He’s discovered the awesomeness of morning walks at the state park. He also sprung for us to go to the movies and see DESPICABLE ME 2. And yesterday there was a morning swimming/splashing in Lake Erie. We’ve also been staying up late (resulting in naps during some days). And we’ll continue to do so the rest of this week! Then, on Saturday we shall feast on pie* and pork steam buns to celebrate the anniversary of my husband’s birth! IT SHALL BE GLORIOUS!!!
*- He wanted me to try out a pie instead of having cake… Not that this pie is healthier in any way… It is butterscotch pie… But, hey he likes pie more than cake and it is his birthday, so I’m on it! Seriously, though, IT SHALL BE GLORIOUS!
Today’s update is brought to you by the phrase, “Killing it!” Writing goal? FLAMES reached 50% done and, obviously, I’m killing it. Reading? I’m back to FRANKENSTEIN and I’ve read more this summer than I did all last year (this book puts me over). Killing it. Exercise? Last week was a fail, but this week is killing it! Visits was “luck” vs. “killing it.”
Plan For This Week:
Nothing is typical this week. I’m not sure when I’ll get my words in. I will get them in, though. Just not sure how much and when…
From the To Do List Goals… PMGCB is still out with readers. Can’t do anything there. Pre-writing sheets still need love. This is a “maybe” for this week.
Regarding FRANKENSTEIN… It makes me sleepy. Okay, I’ve been extra sleepy since I quit smoking. But, this just makes it worse. I might have to juggle read like my son is doing.
Hope no one minds the WIPpet logo I made to use on here. I have a thing for logos and while I saw others use cool ones, I wasn’t sure if I could use them or not… And then I thought I should make one. That’s what I came up with. Anyone that may want to use it, can go for it.
What is WIPpet Wednesday?
This is when WIPpeteers share a bit from a work in progress (or WIP) and use the date to decide how much to share. KL Schwengel runs the show. Find the linkie on her page to read other people’s work or join in.
I know my math is very vanilla. But, I like vanilla. Why do people got to hate on it? July 17th or 7/17 means 7 sentences from page 17.
Info On My WIPpet
I’ll be sharing from FLAMES (again), a YA Fantasy. Last time, I introduced you to the narrator and her dictionary. This week, I reveal her name and introduce another character. By total accident, I withhold the other character’s name. Maybe I’ll reveal that next week!
“Mason, stop!” All at once life came back to her. She was lunging forward toward me. Horror no longer a mask, but panic.
And I didn’t understand, nor did I listen. I crawled right back into a table. I sent it wobbling and a vase fell on my back, covering me in water.
End of Post Questions!
Do I stick a candle in the pie? What do you like better (cake or pie)?
Have you met a book you like, but had a hard time reading? How did you deal with it?
Has anyone every told you to stop, but you didn’t listen? What was your result?
