So. Many. Snow. Days. It all helped me realize that my ideal of writing 2,000 words everyday was nothing more than an ideal. While everyone else is home, scheduled or not, I cannot do 2,000 but I can comfortably manage 1,000. We’ll save 2,000 for the days everything goes as planned and they are all at work/school. Since snow days, kids getting sick, and so on aren’t planned, I can only say how much I’m supposed to write after I’ve written for a week. So, it’s always going to be a surprise!

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 2/25/15. First, we’ll ta the first and last numbers of the date and make 5 – 2 for page 3. Then we’ll take the day and make 2 + 5 = 7 paragraphs. As for that 1? We’ll put it in our pocket for another day.
What’s My WIPpet?
Again I share from ALCHEMY, my cozy mystery fantasy.
Remember they pounded at Ana’s door to get her attention. Now they finally get to the point as to why they were knocking in the first place. (Story is narrated by Ana.)
This Week’s WIPpet
So, I clarified. “I shake my head because I do not understand. I cannot give what I do not know about,” I said.
“The carver fruit. Give it back,” said the guard. His hand was still out and his fingers now wiggled.
“I didn’t buy any carver fruit,” I said.
“I know you didn’t buy, stupid girl. You stole it,” said Luga. She pointed to a cart that was parked next to mine. It was a mix of harvested vegetables and fruit. Next to it was a worn young man with a scared look on his face.
“From there?” I asked, nodding my head in the direction she pointed.
“Yes,” hissed Luga.
“Without leaving my wagon?” I asked.
