M. Cancerous Adverb

Hello all,

Today I am wondering, do you have a go to word?

I am finding that when writing there are a few words that always sneak their way into our writing.  For example the word, extremely.  I have recently noticed that extremely is a cancerous adverb in our writing.  I don't know why, but it always pops as a word to use.

What about you?  Do you have a word or several words that always creep their way into your sentences?

  1. I have a terrible addiction to the words "Just" and "really." I have to do a search and delete during edits to get rid of them all. I also do an "ly" check with the "Find" function to locate the unnecessary adverbs and weed them out. It's never ending all the stuff we have to look for. :/
