Last week I wrote a post on voice and “tics,” the unconscious lazy word habits we all get into as writers.
This week I found a lovely article by science fiction writer C.J. Cherryth on Writerisms that goes into more detail on what to avoid. I have an issue with a few of the rules (for example, I believe that passive voice has its place when used intentionally and sparingly), but overall the article is amazing and well worth the read.
