First, an apology. I wasn’t able to visit everyone back last week. My apologies. Sinus cold is winning.
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
The date (12/11/13) gets split down the middle to give us 1+2+1= 4 (page #) and 1+1+3= 5 (paragraphs).
What’s My WIPpet?
We’re still with code name: GRANDMA. This is a MG fantasy, possibly more magical realism? My main character, Lizzie, is being found.
This Week’s WIPpet
I heard Grandma call out to me again, “Lizzie?” There was worry this time. Her panicked feet ran to the door I had locked. I listened to the knob refusing to turn.
“I’ll be right there, Lizzie,” said Grandma. Then, I heard the doorknob clunk and clack a bit more.
Finally, the door opened.
Being under the desk, all I saw were her legs. Her pale blue pants were muddy up past her ankles, nearly half way up to her shins. Her shoes were caked in mud that was falling onto the carpet around her and had left prints out in the hall.
I had never been happier to see her legs
