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 3/5/2014. Let’s get math messy! Let’s use 1 + 2 + 0 = 3 for our paragraphs. Then 3 + 5 + 4 = 12 and that will be our page.
What’s My WIPpet?
Again we continue to read from my MG novel, GRANDMA. George had a major freak out that landed Lizzie on her butt. She’s just getting back up…
This Week’s WIPpet
But, you know what all this pain was useful for? It reminded me that this wasn’t a dream. This was real. Not a dream. Not a blockbuster movie. Not some story a lady at the library was reading. This was real. This was happening.
I had to make it more real. “There’s a giant tree growing in Grandma’s entry.” There, I said it. The strange and impossible had been put into words.
Then, I touched it, so that it really sunk in. It was incredibly smooth. Despite the rough looking texture full of browns, blacks, and grays, there was no bumps or jagged edges. Nothing snagged at my fingertips or tried to pull at my flesh.
