Acronyms. We know them, we use them. Often, we write by them. Some of these are obvious, but bear with me…
POV – Point of view
ms – Manuscript
SASE – Self-addressed stamped envelope
IRC – International reply coupon
FNASR – First North American Serial Rights
BIC – Bottom in chair
BICHOK – Bottom in chair, hands on keyboard
Let me add a new one.
JHS – Just Hit Send
What is Just Hit Send?
It’s the philosophy I’ve been writing by lately.
In either September or October, I joined a challenge on the freelance writing board of the Absolute Write Water Cooler. (There’s another acronym for you: AWWC.)
I started small. Compared to some of them, my goals are still small. But I am submitting. That’s the point.
You could say JHS is a complement to the BICHOK principle.
I mean, really, if I’m going to write it, I might as well send it. And soon I’ll start getting paying acceptances.
