WIPpet Wednesday
It is WIPpet Wednesday. Many thanks to Emily Witt, who initiated this wonderful WIPpet gathering.  I am still working out of boxes, but the boxes are fewer than before.

  So, here goes for today:

  • What have I read?

I read Bound by the Summer Prince by Mistral Dawn, The review will appear on my book review blogs soon.

What am I reading?

Still reading PEAK: Secrets From The New Science Of Expertise by Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool, How To Become A Writer by Barbara Baig, and I Was Right On Time, My Journey from the Negro Leagues to the Majors, Buck O’Neil with Steve Wulf and David Conrad, and Aftermath by George Weinstein, which I bumped up to the top of the list.

  • What do I plan to read next?

My GRL by John Howell, The Violin Man’s Legacy by Seumas Gallacher and Flash 40 Life’s Moments by Janelle Jalbert, The Last Coach by Allen Barra, and My Personal Best by John Wooden with Steve Jamison, Our Justice by John Howell.

My Snippet is composed of 10 paragraphs continuing with chapter 12. I may present the entire chapter, but I am not sure,.

Background and summary: This is Kirk’s reaction to Daniel stealing Phoebe.


"You, scoundrel, you,” Kirk said. “Now you’re stealing my best employee.”

Daniel and Peter both laughed.

“Kirk,” Daniel said, “ you can’t have it both ways. Phoebe stays, but you won’t have her anymore; she works in this office.”

“So, why was Angie here?” Peter asked.

“To protect Phoebe and find out my intentions.”

“And what are your intentions?” Kirk asked.

“I told Angie the same thing I’m telling you guys. I’m not going to hurt Phoebe. By the way, please keep Angie’s visit a secret. Phoebe doesn’t need to know it.”

“Why?” Peter asked.

“Because Phoebe is suspicious and very sensitive, at the moment. If she knew Angie was late to school to come and to talk to me, she’d think Angie betrayed her.”

That’s all, folks.

Until next week, be safe.
