#AtoZChallenge: Just


So just one thing before I get into just: still at battle with my head. I’m sorry I’m a bad visitor and comment responder right now, but at least I’m still posting…


OK, just. Just is just my my writing tick. Why? It just is.

No matter what I’m writing, “just” just sneaks right in. Even in my fiction, I always have to do a search for “just,” and when I see how many hits there are, I’m just flabbergasted.

We all have those ticks, those words that always show up no matter what our intention. “Just” isn’t even a very useful word, really.

The key is identifying them so that we can destroy them, destroy them with the might of a thousand word-processing programs.

Or just the one. Really, you only need the one.

What’s your tick?
