Writers love to describe things: scenes, people, places. It’s no wonder we get carried away sometimes and over qualify our descriptions.
I thought I'd share my list of 7-deadly sins to boring writing:
2) A little
3) A lot
These are words to watch out for and then, when you find them in your writing, cut them. This is one time you don’t want to reuse – instead, recycle and reduce your word count by eliminating these unwanted words.
Here are a few more to watch out for:
10) Sort of
11) Kind of
I hope this helps you find ways to watch your “word” weight and cut down on your waste
