Day 28

Do you have an expression that you probably use too much in your writing?

The first one that comes to mind is characters using their hands as they talk. I like animated people, people who throw their hands up when they’re excited or clench their fists when they’re angry. But I definitely use the term “talked with their hands” specifically too much, if I’m being honest. I also have an issue with “I felt” and “I saw.” I’m a teller, not a shower and that’s been a big struggle in maturing my writing, but knowing is half the battle.
