WIPpet Wednesday
It is WIPpet Wednesday. Many thanks to Emily Witt, who initiated this wonderful WIPpet gathering.  

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, My GRL by John Howell, and The 12 Key Pillars of Novel Construction: Your Blueprint for Building a Strong Story by C.S. Lakin.

  • What do I plan to read next?

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, and Miami Morning by Mary Clark.

My Snippet is composed of 11 sentences out of chapter 14. Daniel has returned to his office. He confronts Phoebe asking her if she has taken a lunch break.


“Did you take a break?”

“No, I didn’t come in until noon, so I don’t need a break.”

“Yes, you do. Take one now.”

“I don’t want to take a break; I would like to finish what I’m doing.”

“Phoebe, we’re not going to discuss this. As your boss, I’m ordering you to take a break.”

“Okay, Boss. I’ll go sit in the coffee lounge and have a coffee, if that will satisfy your command.”

“No, it won’t. Take three hours off. Go home. See about the kids and give me a call around seven to see if I need you to come back into the office.”

That’s all folks.

Until next Wednesday, be safe.

Shalom aleichem,
