Since immersing myself in the writing world I don’t think a day has gone by that I haven’t learned a new acronym, hashtag, and other lingo that goes with the territory.

Here’s what I’ve learned so far:

WIP = work in progress

MC = main character

POV = point of view

Beta Readers = people (usually friends and family) who will read you book pre-publishing to give you feedback

Pantser and Plotter – Terms quite a bit to describe people’s writing process style of either winging it or being more structured.

Popular Hashtags include:

  • #amwriting
  • #writingcommunity
  • #writerscommunity
  • #amediting
  • #amrevising
  • #writerslife

These are the ones I’ve come across most often. There are a lot more relating to genres, publishing, agents, selling books, etc.

I’m still a newbie in the writing world. As I come across more acronyms, terms, and hashtags I’ll update this post.
