I love this post by Diane Tibert on words we use and overuse in our MSS. Pop on over and tell her what you have to edit for the most.

Diane Tibert

Sometime during the course of my writing life I somehow decided some to be an appropriate word for many things. After all, it’s generic. I could say sometime, somewhere and simply some. It meant a lot of things. I didn’t need to go looking for the perfect word to describe something; some summed it up.

Some was the perfect word for everything I didn’t want to identify.
