Boxing Day :)

Well, the last couple of days have been really nice and relaxing. πŸ™‚

And after an eventful Christmas day, cooking for my husband and my dad and step mum. I slopped off to bed last night at 9pm and slept right through to 9am.

I was exhausted. But in a very nice way.

So today, I am editing, writing and chilling out once again. Jobs are all done and the house is clean. I have my fav friend next to me, trying to push me off the couch. She won’t win!

The editing/writing is going well. I’m at present going through and eliminating all the things I know I over do in a first draft.

I tend to write passively, so fixing those spots up is a must. After all a story should be active and exciting….

Then there are some word choices I know I write which are ‘lazy’ so they’re next on the list. ‘nodded’ and ‘looked’ are some of them.

I would think dialogue will be my next hit. Lots to do huh…

What are your writing ‘habits’ that you have to go back and fix?

What is your most overused word?

Happy Boxing day πŸ™‚
