Brevity Is…: Potential Wit for 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 Witt.

I have a confession to make.

That’s how I started my last WIPpet Wednesday post, and it fits today, for different reasons. Then, I was preparing for the onslaught of birthdays and death anniversary and camping.

Tonight, I blame Shakespeare, because we all went to see a free performance of Romeo and Juliet at a local park. The play began at 6, so I’m running out of day now.

And so I’ll keep this brief in the spirit of the Bard, so I can post before a swift-approaching midnight. I’m taking a break before going back to Sea Changes, and sharing a bit from An Unspecified Project. Points for anyone who can guess what, who, where, and why?

WIPpet Math:

  • Today is August 3, 2016
  • Two sentences. Why two? Because “Brevity is the soul of wit.” And these are brief.

No. Honestly, I’m more interested in the guy in the bathroom.”

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. And maybe WHY they’re interested in him? I mean; the door’s closed, and we don’t know where we are, who he is, or what he wants….

      But we’ll know more on Wednesday (and I say that as though I’m clueless….)

    1. I agree, even if my trip was considerably shorter (although, with the brake rotors scraping all the way home…but Jim fixed them, so my rusty chariot now stops easy-peasy!

      As for the snippet, I’m wondering if you know who, and who, and why….?

      1. I’m not sure: It feels less like Trip or T’Pol and more a Beckett statement. So I’m thinking Phlox or Archer.

        Sorry about the brakes… I know how that can be.

    1. I listened to them a LOT when I was 15 and 16, and Business As Usual and Cargo came out.

      True story – for my wedding gift almost 19 years ago, Eden Mabee gave me a copy of Contraband. =D

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