I feel a bit like Bilbo giving his birthday speech. “Eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits.” Or, in this case, three years and five months is far too short a time to be hobnobbing with such excellent and creative writers. Yes, it’s been that long since I re-launched WIPpet Wednesday. I did a bit of post scanning and found this entry dated June 13, 2012:
I’m jumping on the Wippet Wagon. Wednesday Wippet is an idea I first saw on Krista Walsh’s site. She snagged it from Sarah L. Fox. The idea is to share a bit of your WIP on Wednesday ~ the only rule appears to be that it ties in with the date.
Since then the WIPpeteer ranks have swelled to as many as 20 authors from various genres, gathering on Wednesdays to share bits of their wips. A more supportive, fun, talented group you will not find. Okay, you might, but it would take some doing.
Don’t fret, the monkeys and I aren’t going anywhere, and I certainly don’t want to lose touch with the WIPpeteers. But I’ve sorely neglected WIPpet Wednesday for a couple months now. Not fair to those participating at all. And, quite frankly, I don’t know when that is going to change. Priorities shift, game plans change, goals bob around like those numbered ducks in the wading pool at the carnival.
Unlike Bilbo’s speech, however, I won’t announce that this is The End. I am not going. I bid no one a fond farewell. I’m merely stepping down as administrator. If any WIPpeteer wants to grab the reins, let me know, I’ll pass on the linky info if you don’t have it. I’d love to see it continue, and will probably make an appearance every now and again if it does.
If it doesn’t, I leave you with this quite from the indomitable Dr. Suess…
