Writer Lingo

A lot of people have no idea what the abbreviations that writers use actually mean. I’ll catch you up to speed with the ones I’m familiar with.

MC = Main Character

WIP = Work in Progress

SNI = Shiny New Idea

Synop = Synopsis

R = Rejection

That’s all that immediately jump out at me. There are a few other abbreviations we use on the AW Boards, such as:

IMO = In My Opinion

JMO = Just My Opinion

HTH = Hope This Helps

FWIW = For What It’s Worth

Add anymore you can think of! My brain is fried lately…
