What words do you overuse in your writing? Lorie show us a great way to fix that problem on her blog today. ~Elle
I discovered yet another layer of revision by making a “word cloud” from my manuscript. I simply pasted my entire manuscript into the tool atWordItOut.You can easily see my overuse of certain words.
I’ve spent the last two mornings removing about half of my uses ofknow. Only a little tedious. I found most of them were in dialogue that I thought sounded conversational, but was merely boring, you know? Now, maybe I’ll just do that with all the rest.
Thanks to Joan Dempsey over atRevise With Confidencefor the link and the insights.
Have you tried this with your writing? What did you learn?
