On Sunday I raised my daily word count goal from 1,000 to 1,500. It has been rough, but I’ve been making it. The struggle with the words had me a little down in the dumps. However, I think I turned things around yesterday (daydreaming might have been the answer). Or it could just be that I promised myself a day off next week if I got 2,000 words ahead of schedule.

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 2/18/15. For the page I’ll use the month: 2 and for the amount we’ll add the rest for sentences: 1 + 8 + 1 + 5 = 15. (Or I could have just taken the year for that last bit.)
What’s My WIPpet?
Again I share from ALCHEMY, my cozy mystery fantasy.
Last week I asked who everyone wanted to meet next. Luga got one vote (she was my favorite), Rik got one vote, and Tammas got two.
Edit: All excerpts (and the whole piece) is from Ana’s point of view. This is her first “encounter” with Tammas. More are to come (in fact, I’m writing a scene him and see through fish today).
This Week’s WIPpet
I opened my mouth to try and move things along. However, I was caught off guard. Unlike the others who were stopping to watch, a man made his way through the crowd.
I immediately wanted to fix him. The one blue eye and one brown locked with my gaze just long enough to tempt me. Was it natural or a botched potion? I could take care of either. And if I did, he’d be handsomer than most nobles. Well, after I used a solution to remove those ink stains from his fingers. And, my… He was quite tall and lean. Nothing about him screamed brute. A rare type.
If I hadn’t known better, I would have guessed him for nobility. But, I did know better.
