Simple yet powerful advice. I’ll bet we all have a lot of unnecessary filter words in our manuscripts. I’m adding this to my editorial key that I use to revise my books. Thank you!
I was glad I came across it. Someday, I’m going to put all these things into a book on self-editing.
I;ve been seeing so much filtering in published work, I was starting to think this was just a personal pet peeve of mine. Thanks for the validation.
When you see the issue pointed out like this, a light goes on and you can discern the difference between mediocre writing and professional writing. Most editors don’t edit to this level, but I do (now). 🙂
