(1/5) > >>

This is a list of some common acronyms used on the forum.  Please add more as you see fit.

OMG = Oh My God
OMFF = Oh My Freakin Fruitloop (our silly substitution for something worse) Smiley
LMAO = Laughing My Butt (substitute the stronger A word) Off
BTW = By The Way
K&K - karma and koolaid

POV - Point Of View
WIP - Work In Progress
PB - the Princess Bride
IMHO - In My Humble Opinion
IDK - I Don't Know
MS - Manuscript
MSS - Manuscripts
MC - Main Character
LOL - Laugh Out Loud
ROFL - Rolling On the Floor Laughing

then there is the shorthand:

full cold - a full MS requested before a partial MS
full on a partial - a full MS requested after a partial has been read

...there are others, though - can't remember them.

ROFLMAO -- rolling on the floor laughing etc. for if it was a really funny one

WTF... What the... I'm sure I don't have to explain that one.  ;D

TTFN -- haven't seen this around here but pretty common on the internet Ta Ta for now

BRB -- Be right back again common on the internet so one might run into it

I suppose one should mention SASE but I should think everyone knows it. (self-addressed stamped envelope in case anyone doesn't)

Can't think of anything else.

FWIW = For what it's worth
IMO = In my opinion
IMHO = In my humble opinion (used rarely!)
