I find myself using a lot of the cliches talked about with Knight. Reading the way they should or could be written instead is very helpful for my future writings. I feel as if i use them so much sometimes because of trying to fit a word count or try to make my story more “juicy” when in reality it makes it harder to read looking back at my writings.
Reading about the no no words we should not be using in our writing is a big eye opener for me because I use those words a lot in my writings. Reading about the word “very” and “that” and how they shouldn’t be used in certain ways is interesting. I like the part talking about the word “very” and how it says to not tell the reader how to think. I like that way of thinking and find it interesting to not use the word. I never realized the word “very” could possibly have people trying to get the reader to think the way they do.
