Question What is a WIP?

People on here always quote lines from their "WIP"..? What is it? Should I have one?

WIP is Work In Progress, and you probably already have at least one.

Right here in this very FAQ forum is a scintillating list of abbreviations and terms: FAQ: The Absolute Write Dictionary

Be pleased to strip naked and I'll demonstrate its usage.
