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…but don’t leave popcorn in the center seat!
It’s Wednesday again. Saturday was my birthday – a low-key day. I don’t do parties, since my birthday falls only four days after the anniversary of my son’s death. A quiet, personal recognition of the day is all I can handle.
Last week, I wrote about how getting through Elijah’s Days felt like the moments after running a marathon. This week, I’ve got that feeling again, in a different way, and for a different reason.
The Chaostivity Marathon – four straight months of writing challenges – ended with July, and I have August off before the Chaostivity 10K kicks off with Story A Day September, on through OctPoWriMo, and then on to the main stage of the race – NaNoWriMo in November.
So this is my month of rest, organizing, and securing loose ends.
But, of course, there’s room for Trip and T’Pol…so let’s get to it, shall we?
It’s time for another installment of my finally-getting–sassy-TnT fan fiction story, adapted from Humanity’s Enterprise. It’s a patchwork of stories, written in different styles, at different times, and for different projects. 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.
I’ve decided to use this story, once revision gets to a point I’m comfortable with, as my initiation into Wattpad. So please don’t hesitate to let me know if something’s not working for you – it will make a better story in the long run!
Trip’s Vulcan Surprise Package would never have turned her back on him, but the snippy Vulcan woman in Jon Archer’s Ready Room just did – and rejected his friendly handshake, too. Now what?
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.

- I have 10 sentences for you today. I added the digits of the month and date.
