What’s WIPpet Wednesday?
Wednesday is for the day of the week I (and others) share a WIPpet. The word WIPpet is the joining of the word snippet with the acronym WIP, which stands for Work In Progress. Using the date to conjure up a math formula, WIPpeteers (the group of people that share WIPpets) figure out how much to share.
My WIPpet Math
11/20? Then 1 + 1 + 2 + 0 = 4 paragraphs. This is my first time ever sharing anything from it, so this is from page one.
What’s My WIPpet?
This is a Fantasy, possibly Magical Realism, MG novel in its second draft, code named GRANDMA. None of that starts until chapter 2, however. (I have just started chapter 2, so…)
This Week’s WIPpet
My “defining moment?” Oh, that happened like half a lifetime ago. Back when I was in kindergarten.
It was early May and summer was wiggling in early that Saturday morning. I was at Grandma’s, like I am every weekend. Even though it wasn’t even lunch, we had already abandoned our jackets on the ground.
I’m not sure what was making us so warm. Was it the sun or the fact we were tilling her garden? Well, I was baby back then, so it was more like Grandma was tilling and I was poking the ground with my little plastic gardening tools. Still, we were busy.
But, it wasn’t just us feeling the warmer, summery days were starting. Nature’s creatures were feeling it too. There were more birds visiting grandma’s bird feeders. Something off in the woods was making bushes shimmy and shake. Grandma pointed out some new burrows by the shed.
