Here’s a little writing exercise for you today- it’ll take 5 minutes and get your brain working and maybe make you smile. Let’s take some of our favorite writing acronyms and turn them inside out!
Here’s what you do: pick one or more of the following acronyms and make it stand for something else. You can do whatever you want, depending on your mood.
WIP (work in progress)
POV (point of view)
MC (main character)
YA (young adult)
MG (middle grade)
NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)
For example, if you’re liking your WIP at the moment, you might call it your Wonderful Interesting Prose. If not, it might be your Wonky Irritating Puddle. Maybe the problem is with its POV- does it have Penguins Ordering Volkswagens? Or the MC- that pesky Manic Cockatoo. It’s okay. Next year you’ll have a new MS- Magnificent Story- for NaNoWriMo- Nasty Note Wriggling Monsters.
