X And Umm....Y

Better late than never. Just pretend today's really Thursday. X is for Xtraneous words. I know, I know, its not how you're supposed to spell it but nobody said anything about not being able to make up stuff, so I'm going to. I have a problem with this. I always have too many xtraneous words and I spend half my time removing them when I'm revising. Why can't I just spot those pesky bad habits the first time around. I vote for an xtraneous word remover for Word. The first person that comes up with this needs to contact Microsoft stat. And BTW, it's perfectly okay to send me the trial version first, just saying.

Now moving onto the Y, and yes, you're now free to acknowledge the day is Friday. 

You- are amazing if you're reading this because I have been a terrible reply blogger all week. Work has been insane. I'll make it up to you. Promise.

Yevan- is the name of a character in a WIP I work on from time to time. He's not a huge character and he's actually dead and only referred to as the dead Yevan, but he's still a character I suppose.

Yaris- Model of the tiny Toyota I should be buying this weekend after spending a HUNDRED AND FIFTY BUCKS IN GAS THIS WEEK. (I was screaming this last part)

Yemen- A place I've never aspired to go. If you're from Yemen and you're reading this, don't take it personally. I've never aspired to go to Idaho either. Crap, if you're from Idaho and you're reading this, don't take it personally. I happen to love potatoes, I just...nevermind.

Happy Weekend, people.


  1. LOL!!! Extra words are a plague to me, too. Loved the Y comments--too funny.

    Good luck with the new car. Hope work calms down for you soon.

  2. xtraneous words...I'm a fan. I thing rather than creating a program to spot and eliminate them, instead we should glory in them! Be proud of our very good, excellent, imaginative and unique vocabulary stylings... :D

  3. I completely agree with the pesky word remover. I drive myself insane trying to remove them and in the end when I do the final read through, I always end up finding a few I have missed and start all over again. Thank you so much for following my blog.

  4. Hope you got all caught up!
