Novels, poems, and writing tips

Meanwhile, I have a ‘just’ problem… though

This, my friends, is a plea for help.

Everyone always says that admitting you have a problem is the first step to finding help. I’m hoping that still applies because I have something to get off my chest.

I, Madison Uram, am a repeat word offender.

Words like “just”, “though”, and “meanwhile” are like drugs to me. I can’t stop using them! I just went through my novel and here’s the unedited tally of each of them:

Just-667

Though-260

Meanwhile-57

Keep in mind, that my novel is currently 102,926 words long… This is also excluding the amount of just-though-meanwhiles that I have already eradicated…

Those aren’t the only words I’ve done this with, though! A couple years ago, I was addicted to the word “briskly”. BRISKLY. It’s an adverb. Adverb are not good!

Ugh.

This has been your daily installment of: Madison has a writing problem.

Stay tuned for more ranting and frustration.

I'm just another young writer hoping to get noticed in the world of publication. The majority of my time is put into writing novels, but I'm no stranger to journalism, playwriting, and critical essay's, too. I'm also the author of "The Little Paragons" which can be found on Amazon.com.
