WIPpet Wednesday: windsong

WIPpet Wednesday, hosted by K. L. Schwengel, is a link-up in which we post an excerpt somehow related to the day’s date. Join here!

I am so close to finishing Book 2. But I don’t know if I want to call it Elegy anymore. Somewhere in the process of writing, it became more about a song–specifically, the Windsong–and how such a song can save the world. I suppose I’m not in a hurry to name the second…

“When this is done, I’m going to go swimming and relax. Become a dolphin.” –me

WIPpet Wednesday is a link-up where every Wednesday, you share an excerpt from your WIP that’s somehow related to the day. My little brother turns 17 today. Since I can’t think of any birthday parties in Dissonance or Elegy, I’ll just snatch an excerpt from chapter 17.…

Today, on the way to the swimming pool, my brother caught a picture of me reading in the car. That’s a nook, and it’s the first one I ever got. It was the Christmas present I felt most excited for, after outgrowing American Girl dolls.

Since then I’ve gotten two more recent versions of nook, but for some reason find myself using the oldest. Something about it just feels more honest–as if it were…
