Overused Words

“Take your overused, beaten down, well-worn, and weathered words to the dumpster or to the trash bin on your computer, and dump them. Now find words that are descriptive and fresh to use in your writing. Words that cause emotional thoughts to flow from your mind and the reader. Find words that stick to a slippery surface.”

–Richard Milleville, The Passionate Novel
