What Word Do You Overuse?
When I began drafting Fingerprints, one of my critique group members, Sarah, pointed out that I had used the word "bolt" 67 times.
After doing a "find" in Word, I discovered Sarah was right! My MC, Savanna, had bolted out of bed, down the hall, across the street, out of David's house, into the salon, into the ocean and about 100 million other places.
Since then, I've learned to use my thesaurus and choose my verbs very carefully.
What words or phrases do you tend to overuse?
