  1. I’m a bugger for using ‘suddenly’. Now, I feel suitably chastised and I will wipe it from my vocabulary and start using better… oh wait, now I’m using ‘start’…

  2. It isn’t now, but a while back the first line of my WIP was ‘It started on Sunday’ … well it did … but not suddenly … relieved to find in over 200k words across a few stories I’ve never used that one … unless it crept into the anthology … scary!

  3. Thanks for sharing this Dan. 🙂
    I liked the idea of “write like the goat. Let the reader be the young lady.” The picture really made me laugh and I’ll remember it. 😀

  4. Good lessons, Dan! I think we learn these little nickpickers when we first begin to write, then kind of get lazy about recognizing them as undesirables as time goes by. This is a great refresher ! I still grapple with conversational “tags”, but have disciplined myself to cut down on them, and yet have to periodically remind myself that I was told that many years ago. Then, of course, there are the “l-y” adverbs, something I actually came to admire in the books of Dick Francis, simply because he does it so grippingly! 🙂 But all these little nickpickers add up to very improved prose when they are lacking, so to speak !
