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.

What’s My WIPpet?
This work is code named YELLOW. It is a superhero soap opera (think AVENGERS meets ONCE UPON A TIME). This is my opening paragraph set 50 years ago (I might need to adjust that timing, though to 60).
This Week’s WIPpet
The sky was what woke Helen Lightner that night. She peeled her sister, Wendy, off her arm and stuck her head out the window seeking some cool midnight air and a better look. The sky looked like the puddles by the garage after her daddy worked on the tractor.
