We all do it. Maybe we passed the SATs without help. We may be faithful to our partners. However, there’s always that phrase, sentence, paragraph that we stick into our writing that’s cheating. We’re ducking and weaving, dodging our emotions or even just leaving an awkward phrasing because we can’t think of a way to make it better.
Your weekend mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come clean. Underline that sentence. You know which one. Make it better. Fix it. You know it’s been bothering you like a sore tooth. Be honest with yourself.
