WIPpeteers, I’m back. Long done is summer. The start of September should have welcomed new words, but no. Then I was met with only refining and correcting (edits). It took me so long to return and my return is far from dramatic. Right now, I’m working on small projects as I set up the next big thing. I missed this community and all the members. I’m so happy to be back.
Don’t Know What WIPpet Wednesday Is?
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.

The date is 10/15. The page is 1 + 0 = 1. The number of sentences is 1 + 5 = 6.
What’s My WIPpet?
HAMSTER is the code name for this chapter book. Knowing the code name and seeing the excerpt… You see where this is going, right?
This Week’s WIPpet
Every Friday night at dinner, like a well oiled clock sounding its alarm, Charles Collins asked a single question. “Can I have a pet?”
His father, Mr. Collins, had grown quite used to it. “No,” he answered between forkfuls.
However, Charles’ older sister, Darcy, was growing quite bored of this. She thought, Why can’t we have a Friday night dinner without this question?
