So, I am going through Mortal Obligation and laughing to myself. The wonderful, amazing, and superb editor Heather Darenberg has brought to my attention that I over use the word odd. Which is a really odd word to over use, you know? Maybe I am just the odd writer that can't get enough of the word odd.. Am I the only author that overuses a word? Am I really that odd? Does it make me a bad writer? Hopefully I don't slip it into odd places in conversation as well! How irritating would that be for the people I am talking to! I'm sure that once I am out of earshot they refer to me as that odd writer that has a weird penchant for using odd words. Wouldn't that annoy anyone?
So, I have decided to list some useful synonyms for future reference.
Are there any words that any of you overuse? I'd love to hear that I am not alone in giving one word a little too much attention. By the way... ODD! ;)
