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 3/19/2014. The page is our year: ’14. Our amount is sentences in the form of the month + day (3 + 19 = 22). Simplest math i’ve done in a while.
What’s My WIPpet?
Surprise! It is my MG novel, GRANDMA. (Shouldn’t be a surprise.) You need a bit of a set up for this. George and Lizzie started going up the sloped branches (where the stairs would be). The tree didn’t like this and started surrounding and separating them with its branches.
This Week’s WIPpet
“George, do you hear me?”
The pounding grew fiercer. He called my name, over and over again.
His reaction made me confused. It made tears start to well up in my eyes. I was starting to lose all sense.
Then, I heard it faintly. Between the beating of his fist and when he took a deep breath, I heard it.
I couldn’t believe my ears. “George, stop it!”
He didn’t, though.
But, I heard something else with his next breath. “George?”
So much softer than his calls. But, they were there. I knew I was hearing them. And of course I would! On the other side of the wall to my left, on the second floor, that was her room.
I wasn’t hearing things. I was hearing her. And she was asking, “Are you two here?”
