Publishing Lingo

It takes a while for new writers to learn the publishing lingo.

Lots of phrases, buzz words, slang, jargon, and perfectly cromulent words are thrown about critique groups on a regular basis. Newcomers to critique groups can mentally stumble when they hear something along the lines of, “The POV in your WIP head hops through white room syndrome, and all of the narrative is written in passive voice with lots of tense shifts.”

POV? WIP? White rooms? Is there padding on the walls of these white rooms? I feel like I’m going insane! I know I’m tense, but how is that shifting around? Well, have no fear. I’m here to help expand your vocabulary into the writerly world of the critique group.  Learn more.
