What is an “Echo?” Tips To Axe These Repeat Offenders

I found this post helpful. The links are interesting, especially after reading a blog post by the Editors of the Wild Rose Press about “nails on a chalkboard” phrases. One editor said she made an author remove “that” from a manuscript. The word count decreased by 1000.

I’m going to check my over-used words, what about you? http://www.wordcounter.com/

    Linda, you rockstar! Thanks for passing on Sharla’s “echo” wisdom!! The comments have been fascinating as more and more people are sharing tools for this.

      Smiles,
      Linda
