Shipping” — I am hip and relevant

I was doing so well, there, at put­ting out reg­u­lar blog posts. I figured if I could do a weekly intro for my pod­cast, why can­’t I get back on track doing a weekly bit of non­sense here? So today’s blog post is a short blog post about post­ing on my blog.


In oth­er news, I recently learned the youth­ful term: Ship­ping. [ “Ship­ping” — I am hip and relevant ]

The “ship” part is from “rela­tion­ship.” It is used when a per­son wishes two people, often (usu­ally?) char­ac­ters in a book, movie, whatever, should form a relationship.

I tweeted some­thing the oth­er day about Derry and Kyer, and a read­er said, “I ship them!” I needed this expres­sion explained to me, but once I learned it I thought it quite delight­ful that the read­er should ship my characters.

It’s an hon­our that a read­er should care about my char­ac­ters enough to ship them! And now that I can use it cor­rectly in a sen­tence I feel totally hip and relevant.
