Let Me Ask You a Question – 4/17/18


Let me ask you a question:

Are there words you avoid using when you write?  For instance, I never use the word “very” on my blog page.

  1. I am trying to become more aware of the words that I use when writing and speaking. I didn’t use to think about it much after reading Stephen King’s book, “On Writing,” and he said in the book, “The road to hell is paved with adverbs.” It got me thinking of what I write, and how I use the word’s. Of course the words, “Very,” and “Never,” well you have to be careful because they don’t leave much room for anything else 🙂

  2. Nothing that I can think of…except the words Bob covered above.
    I obviously want people to read my blog and get something from what I share, but the moment I start second guessing what I write because of certain words, I’ll lose what I feel I bring to the table. Honesty and a rawness that I think people connect to.
    I also have an underlying fear when it comes to grammar. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are mistakes in this comment, but I can’t let that get into my head because that’s not what I feel called to think about.

    I mean none of this in a snarky way. 😉
