Welcome to WIPpet Wednesday, a weekly blog hop which encourages writers to move WIPs (works-in-progress) to publication by posting excerpts related to the date.We’re led by the capable fingers and nimble mind of Emily Witt.
Ever come out of a period of intensive focus blinking and kind of wondering where you are and how you got there?
That’s me right now.
I’m on a brief, post CampNaNoWriMo hiatus from drafting The Last House, my Kifo Island prequel WIP project. I’m shifting it to my tertiary drafting goal for this month; I’ll be focusing on Story A Day May flash fiction and fan fiction drabbles first, then my “dangling” fantasy epic volume, Foul Deeds Will Rise (Trueborn #2), which is nearing its climax, and which I definitely want to wrap up, and soon!
So, I’m relaxing a little into a slightly mellower flow (my brain doesn’t like to get too slow, so there’s still lots going on). Taking walks, soaking in the post rain greening up, the scent of the lilacs and air saturated with the scent of rain and lilacs.
But, whatever else I’m writing, it’s time for this week’s installment of myTnT fan fiction story, adapted from Humanity’s Enterprise. I’ve got a patchwork of stories, written in different styles, at different times, and for different projects – and I’m slowly figuring out how to pull them all together into a coherent whole that explores just how and why T’Pol was the one Vulcan chosen to accompany Enterprise NX-01 on her maiden voyage.
There will be hints and shadows and lots of delicious Trip and T’Pol sassiness, eventually. But first, we’ve got to lay the groundwork that gets her there, and that’s where we are right now.
T’Pol reacted strongly to a file on the data device Soval assigned her. Now, we’ll start to learn why.
Here’s the standard disclaimer. I don’t own them; I don’t make money from them; I just love them, and I tell the stories they give me as well as I can.
Today is May 3, 2017.
I have 5 paragraphs for you today, for the month.
