Writers use a lot of abbreviations. To a new writer, many blog posts can seem to be written in code. I mean what how you are supposed to know that they are talking about when they write things like this:
So I was writing in my WIP and found that I slipped POV in the third chapter. I have been doing the POV from the FMC but in chapter three I did it from the MMC. I was really hoping to finish editing my MS this week, but it looks like that isn’t going to happen.
Confusing, isn’t it? Well here is a handy guide to know what all those little abbreviations mean.
WIP – Work in Progress
MS – Manuscript
POV – Point of View
MC – Main Character
FMC – Female Main Character
MMC – Male Main Character
Did I miss any? Let me know and I would be happy to decipher them for you.
