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 2/26/14. To get the page we’ll split 26 down the middle and take all the number from the right. That means 6 + 1+ 4 = page 11. That leaves us 2 + 2 = 4 paragraphs.
What’s My WIPpet?
I continue to share from my MG novel, GRANDMA. Last week, there was a warning sign Lizzie ignored. This week, she ignores George, because he doesn’t get it.
This Week’s WIPpet
“Hey!” George was at it again. This time he didn’t back down from the look I gave him. “You don’t just walk into other people’s houses.”
I rolled my eyes. “Grandma gets caught up in things.” Like this one time, she put on a white noise machine and started doing interpretive dance to it. Another time, she had put on headphones while sculpting because her stereo speakers had died. And one time, she was in the bathroom because of bad shrimp.
Unhappy about having to explain, I pushed open the front door. “That’s why the door is unlocked. We’re expected.”
The sound I heard seconds ago stopped while I was talking to George. With the door only a foot open, I noticed something was different.
