I recently got some non-WIPpeteer feedback on the nature of WIPpet Wednesday. Specifically, it confuses them. So today I offer an explanation.
WIPpet Wednesday is what is known in the blog world as a meme.
To make things all the more
confusing interesting, some of us use wacko math to make the date fit our excerpts. If I wished, I might use 07+10+13 to get 30 for today’s post. Sometimes we WIPpeteers even throw multiplication or division into the mix.
So that’s WIPpet Wednesday. (In case you were wondering about the term WIPpet, it’s a hybrid of Work In Progress and snippet.)
To muddle things up further, let me add that my current WIPpets ARE in chronological order, and represent a complete first draft. For a better explanation, read this post. In the meantime, here’s my latest excerpt. I’ll keep it really short, since this post is already pretty long.
A boy walked into the arena. “Meeting tomorrow. Everyone must come.”
