Liz, good link. I often think while I'm blogging of all the extraneous words I use. Hopefully in the WIP I will edit edit and edit them out.JJx
There is a whole host of words that I edit out of my work when I do my first edit though "there" is not one of them. Some of my list are: virtually, almost, very, but, some, eventuallly....can't remmber the others off had, but they are non-descriptive."There" is not one of them, and feel it's not a word I'm that worried about. If I took the advice of every writing tip I read,my voice would disappear. Just imagine how Jane Austen's work would differ if she wrote now! Jx (Who helped with the refresh prob not so long ago)
Thanks for the link Liz.I was a bit confused to see 'there' until I realised he meant only as 'place':-)x
Good link, Liz. I'm addicted to 'besides' and 'anyway'. I put the search and delete on for these two after I've wriiten a book.
Good link, thanks. I use 'then' far too often.
JJ, when I blog I don't think about words at all. I'm afraid I subject my blog readers to unedited thought and it probably shows.......my appologies all round.Hi anonymous J. I like your list of words. i have found with each book I seem to have a favorite word that appears sooooo frequently but I hadn't thought of Steve's words before in that light either Lane.I used anyway so much in the first novel that won't be mentioned Phillipa.Rachel I love then :-)
Hi there Liz. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my book cover. Glad you like it. Two rejections is nothing. Check out how many J K Rowling had, and George Orwell, TS Eliot, Arthur Miller.... and so on. The list is endless! Just keep on writing and don't ever be discouraged.
It was a pleasure Leigh. Thanks for stopping by :-)
