Outline the concept

                       Initial, rough idea

                       Still needs extra work


                       Revise the first draft

                    Check for errors once again

                         Still far from perfect


                             Further revision

                          Send it to beta readers

                               Half the battle won


        DRAFT If you would like to participate in this challenge, you can find out more here.

… and back to the weird, whacky and sometimes wonderful words (from the dag's dictionary), to keep you entertained for the rest of the week…

Abdomino effect – descriptive of the way a group of male friends gradually gets fatter, as each guy in turn lets himself go.

Snoregasm – the particularly delicious and abandoned moment experienced after you've pressed the snooze button on your alarm clock.

Hope couture – the item of clothing you keep around for years in the vain hope you might fit back into it some day.

      Thanks Karen – I couldn’t resist posting the abdomino effect – it’s a classic!*giggles*

    That covers the steps all right!
    And that last definition is great.

      Seems like I got the steps in the correct sequence… well, hopefully…

    I guess you can tell I was horrible in English class – since writing drafts never occured to me!

    • mish on February 23, 2012 at 6:31 pm

      Were you? 🙂 Anyway, we learn something new everyday… it never ends…

    I did take it to heart, didn't I? I left out the other meanings of the word. Oh well, just shows where my mind is at… thanks for the visit, Zongrik.
