This is hard to write today. I don’t want to write anything whining or negative. Short version? Life has been very much happening in a stressful manner. Positive side is that I think it’s done. (I totally knocked on wood after typing that.) I’m looking forward to today and less stress. (Knocked again.)

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.

The date is 11/12/14. For the page we’ll add together all the ones! 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = Page 4. For the amount we’ll add the rest. 2 + 4 = 6 Short Paragraphs.
What’s My WIPpet?
I’m sticking with HAMSTER even though I started the sequel code named RATS. I figure I can do that as these are all part of my NaNoWriMo project. Anyways, the Collins family is awake at 11:21 and piled into Charles’ room. The hamster has a squeaky, they’re never gonna sleep again wheel.
This Week’s WIPpet
“Darcy, can’t you search the internet for an answer to this?” he asked.
His sister smiled with glee. She loved looking stuff up on her laptop and learning new things. But, their dad had a rule about no electronics past seven o’clock.
“It’s an emergency,” said Mr. Collins. “Just this once.”
Darcy ran back to her room and left the other two to suffer the squeaks for a bit. When she came back, she was carrying her laptop.
“It says hamster are known to run long distances in the wild. Over five miles in one night,” Darcy said rather impressed.
“That’s nice, Darcy. But, how do we stop the wheeling from squeaking?” asked Mr. Collins.
