Personal Pet-Peeves

Personal Pet Peeves:

Slow starts

Agenda-driven plots

Sentences ending with!!!

Predictable dialogue

Typos and misspellings

Too many sentences beginning with He, She, or I

Cliché laden text

Overuse of one or more words

Exaggerated characters/over-the-top physicality

Too much “telling” and not “showing”

Visible “cc” email addresses

Excessively long sentences & paragraphs

Final thoughts:

If you suspect you’re using a word or words repetitively, do a search w/ “Ctrl + F”, and “highlight all”.

If you tell me you’re a published author, I will Amazon.com you!
