I Prewrote This Blog

We have been fortunate to have a few new players join the club recently. In a game between two of them – Ben and Calum - I noticed a great word – PREWRITE. It makes perfect sense, but I had to go and check it because I couldn’t recall having seen it before.

Hooking a P in front of a bingo starting with RE is always worth thinking about. There are so many that I really couldn’t use it for a blog, but we certainly will make P the letter of the week. In the meantime, here are a couple of P hooks you might not have known.

PRECIPE – A writ commanding that something be done.

PREMORSE – An adjective meaning ending abruptly.
