Today’s WIPpet comes from page 11, lines 2 through 6 (today’s date 11/26). If you read last week’s WIPpet about 17-year-old Cain, we’re getting to know a little more about him this week.
This is what I knew. I’d been playing soccer since the age of four and it was love at first kick. My parents had always been supportive, hauling me around with travel teams when I was too young for the school team and also during the off season. I was center forward, on my own field, and felt at home, in my comfort zone. Nothing else existed for me during a game – I was completely focused on what happened in this grass rectangle and with the other seventeen players on the field.
By the end of the first half, the score was tied at 1-1.
The word count wasn’t very high over this past week – just 2500, but that was expected before the holiday break. On the flip side of that, I’ve been to the grocery store three times this week, made two kinds of bread, muffins, cranberry relish, prepped three desserts and six appetizers, thawed two turkeys, and packed everything. Although we’re traveling, hope to get some writing done over the long weekend.
Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!
