there will be no consolation prize. this time the bone is broken clean.

I am in the grip of "seemed" and "almost" this book. I swear, I am killing them by the fistful, drowning them in soapy water.

In Carnival, it was "of course."

So I'm not the only one who abuses "almost"!

I still need to go back and strip 90% of my "faint"s in...er. Any piece I haven't edited yet. Not that anyone ever actually faints, which would at least be interesting, but no, apparently everyone expresses themselves in very subdued variants of standard facial expressions and gestures.
Watch out for that comma-spatter--it doesn't seem like it would stain, but if it doesn't all wash out, the drier does some horrible things to it.
Everyone in everything I write is grim all the time. Which is, y'know, true. But saying it that way is perhaps not so good.
I now have a big list. It was humiliating, how many pages vanished after I went after just those.
thank God, writing is not a performance art.
my current WIP is drowning in 'felt's...who knew my characters were so touchy-feely?!? ;-P

*scrubs them out*
I saw! Thank you!
I'm having issues with "naturally," myself.
...naturally. One would. Of course.
Teach me how to slaughter commas, please?

I use a hammer.
Always remember to wear your safety glasses.

For large comma colonies, a hard hat and face shield may be needed.
