I just finished the first draft of DIVE (Hooray!), but now I’m left with no writing to do (Boo!). So I decided to compile a list of words to eliminate from my writing once I get back to work on my manuscript.
With the help of Twitter and Facebook, I came up with a pretty solid list. Obviously this is a) not a complete list, and b) not meant to suggest that you MUST ALWAYS REMOVE THESE WORDS.
In fact…a lot of the time these words are EXTREMELY useful (see what I did there?)
Take a look, and if you can think of any more words to add to my list, let me know in the comments!
WORDS TO ELIMINATE
• Suddenly/ All of a sudden
• In order to
• Individual (#25!!)
• Kind of/Sort of/Type of
• I believe
• Always (#50!!!!)
Will this list help you with your writing? Do you disagree with my list? Did I miss any? Let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
