Overused Words

Just
Like
Little
Looked
Back

Today I managed to wittle these widdle words down by half. Amazing how often I could just delete them and everything was still just fine. (see I could get rid of both "justs" in that sentence and it would read okay.)

Just. Who knew? And little is a cruddy little adjective.

  1. ... And once you add the "ly" words ... you can eliminate a lot more.

  2. You know, I like a judiciously placed adverb! Hope to get to your chapters tomorrow if we have snow.

Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
