Pressing for #NaNoWriMo2017 WIPpet Wednesday

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 Wrayburn.

Hello there, fellow WIPpeteers – and, to those just along for the ride – welcome! Hop in, get comfy…and let me weave you a story.

But now, on to the WIPpeting!

I’ve been sharing installments of my TnT fan fiction story, a revised version of Humanity’s Enterprise.

But it’s now November, and that means National Novel Writing Month. And THAT means I’m working on something new.

I thought I’d play a little game, here. Each week, I’ll post a snippet of my new story. For every comment I get, I’ll share one fact about the novel the story is coming from.  And, since it’s been tricky for me lately, if you visit me, I’ll come visit you right back.

No worries – next month, my favorite interspecies couple will be back to irk and entice each other (and delight us).

Until then, though…here’s a little taste of something brand new.

WIPpet Math:

  • Today is November 1, 2017.
  • I have 1 paragraph for you today, for the date.


Her scalp tightened with each new item, so that, by the end, it felt far too tight to hold her skull, and the familiar pain was settling in behind her left eye like a Canivaarii fang, pressing and puncturing.

Who is “she”?

What are the items she references?

What do you most want to know after reading this?

Any guesses?

If you’re missing TnT, no worries. While our co-combatants are on hiatus, you can pop over to my page anytime, and catch up on some of their other adventures.


And, as always, clicking the little blue froggy above will carry you on to other WIPpet offerings from our talented and diverse group of writerly folks. You can even add your own date-related excerpt if you’re so inclined!



Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
