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.
Hello there, fellow WIPpeteers – and, to those just along for the ride – welcome! Hop in, get comfy...but don’t leave popcorn in the center seat!
So, the good news: While Story A Day May flash fiction and fan fiction drabbles are top priority this month, I’ve also added almost 1,500 words to my “dangling” fantasy epic volume, Foul Deeds Will Rise (Trueborn #2), which is nearing its climax – and I have a better idea how and why that climax will play out.
In less good news, it’s been a bit of a rough week. My Accomplice and I argued, it’s been cold and damp, and Mother’s Day is around the corner (I love my children – all three of them. Being able to be part of only two of them growing into adulthood….that’s hard. Elijah would be almost 14 now – and it’s still hard. Sometimes the edges can be smoothed out, but the wound remains).
But enough about things that can’t be changed, so must be accepted as-is. On to the WIPpet.
You’re here for another installment of my soon-to-get-sassy-I-promise TnT 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.
T’Pol reacted strongly to an image of the human man named Trip – but will her uncontrolled response lead to her reassignment before she even reaches Enterprise?
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 10, 2017.
I have 5 paragraphs for you today: the month subtracted from the day.
