Well, I sort of realized that I seem to pretty much have some bad habits to mostly eliminate. Sheesh. I start much of my dialogue with “well”. That can be one character’s speech habit, but not everyone. I also use too much indirect phrasing like, “sort of”, “seem”, “pretty much”, “some”, and “mostly”. Ugh.
Diary part: I drove 4.5 hours to get us to our weekend getaway. The result? I only wrote 336 words. But, they were mostly good words. Hahaha
