I skipped WIPpet Wednesday last week as my husband was on vacation and we were running around. Kind of forgot that was happening or I would have said something beforehand. For those that don’t know, I’m doing NaNoWriMo. I’m finishing HAMSTER and writing the 3 books that follow it. And, mostly because I have it, I’ll share this video of what inspired me to write HAMSTER. This is Queenie attacking her weekly toilet paper tube puzzle chew with shelled peanut in the middle.

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 11/5/14. For the page we’ll turn 14 into 4 – 1= 3. For the amount we’ll do 1 + 1 + 5 = 7 sentences.
What’s My WIPpet?
This is HAMSTER. And finally, I’m getting to the hamster part of it. Now if you’re a hamster lover like me you’ll spot the “bad information” right away. The Collins family has no clue about hamsters and their care, but I promise they’ll learn. For those that don’t know, there’s no such thing as a black bear hamster. That’s more of a nickname rather than species.
This Week’s WIPpet
“Tada! I got you a black bear,” said Mr. Collins.
“That’s not a bear, Dad,” said Darcy as she leaned in for a closer look.
“It is a black bear hamster,” said Mr. Collins.
Charles leaned in toward the cage. A hamster. His pet.
