Very frequently, not unique

For all you academic authors out there, what you need to know about the title of this post is that you must never ever use any of the words in your writing. Nor should you ‘feel’ anything ‘eagerly’, or indeed ‘frequently’, and ‘finally’ you should ‘never’ write about ‘the public’.

Who says? Well, it’s a support service for writers called Tameri, and they have a guide for writers that contains a  list of words and phrases to avoid. And indeed they also suggest you stop using adjectives and adverbs; and infinitives. Only then will your writing be perfect. Or not, as you mustn’t use ‘perfect’.

    thanks for this, very timely as I’m writing my ‘nostalgia in the post-digital age’ piece right now, how could anyone do without a guide to word usage which defines itself as:

    “based upon several sources, which are not always in agreement.”

    Like the (postmodern) irony! oups should not have used ‘like’..
