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 is 2/19. To get the page we’ll take the 19 and add the two numbers together: 1 + 9 = Page 10. For the amount we’ll take the month and translate that to paragraphs: 2.
What’s My WIPpet?
I’m sharing from my MG novel, GRANDMA. The characters in the scene are George (who says and does nothing in this snippet) and Lizzie. Lizzie just tripped in the driveway, which is unusual. But, she had good reason. Too bad she didn’t believe it.
This Week’s WIPpet
I took a deep breath and shut my eyes for a moment. “Let’s get in the house,” I said. I said that, because I was sure it was my imagination.
I should have trusted my eyes. I shouldn’t have gone through the door. Windows shouldn’t blink.
