Happy Hump Day everyone!
WIPpet Wednesdays is a blog hop where writers can share a snippet from their WIP (Work in Progress). The only stipulation is that the excerpt is somehow related to the date.
My current project is a new-adult contemporary novella titled Together We Will Live Forever (tentative.) Olivia is a neuroscience grad student and an aspiring artist. Matt works at the art gallery and lives with his daughter, Zelda.
In this snippet, Olivia bumps into Matt at the art gallery:
Olivia’s cheeks turn a shade of crimson red, and she thinks she can very well camouflage with his shirt.
Her instinct is to pretend not to know him and walk away, very, very quickly, to the end of the hallway, because, well, it is possible that she is in dire need of a washroom, which he must be able understand, since he apparently works at the gallery.
But by then, she has already lingered there for so long, staring at him, that it is impossible to deny that she has seen him.
And, to add fuel to the flame, Matt has said. “Hey, aren’t you from my building?”
“Uh, yeah,” She replies. And then it all comes pouring out. “Uh. Sorry about a few days ago. I mean, Saturday. That was super embarrassing. It doesn’t happen with me all the time, you know? I mean, I don’t always get stuck on monkey bars.”
WIPpet Math: It is July 12 and I have 153 words. 1 + 5 + 3 = (2 + 7) x 1.

A quick Camp Nano update: I am at 22036 words out of 50000, which means that I am ahead of the game!
Also, this weekend I’m going to Hamilton, Ontario to do some research for my novel (I’m all for Real Life Research. You gotta get down in the trenches sometimes). By the way, did you know that Hamilton is The Waterfall Capital of the World. Nope, not of Ontario, not of Canada, but of THE WORLD. Who knew?! All you peeps, come to Hamilton 🙂
What are you working on this week? For the Camp Nano-ers out there: How is it going? Do you have a snippet?
