All writers have them. I’m going to be flat out honest and tell you mine.
1. Undisciplined: I really should be finishing up that chapter, but it’s a beautiful day outside and I really would rather be playing baseball. *grabs mitt*
2. Easily distracted: I really ought to polish this scene, but hubby came home and he really is great company. *grabs husband*
3. Adverbose: I really must get out of the habit of splattering my prose with adverbs, but the English language really could use more interesting verbs. *grabs thesaurus*
4. Comma splicer: I really, really should remove, at least, five, maybe four, of the commas from this one dainty, little sentence, but they’re so damn pretty. *grabs editor*
5. Internet addiction: I really need to get this novel started, but, ooh look, there’s a terrific website completely devoted to ways to waste time on the internet! *grabs valium*
Anyone brave or stupid enough to share theirs? C’mon, make me feel better.
P.S. I really should stop using “really” so much.
