What word are you constantly editing out of your works?
I'm infamous for putting the word "just" in just about every other sentence. I just can't seem to help myself. Ha!
"That" I use that word so many time that that seems to be a hindrance that should be addressed that I probably makes my work that would otherwise seem better than that.....

I often put 'actually' and 'actual' far more times than they are necessary. Even then, I had to restrain myself from putting an 'actually' between 'are' and 'necessary' in that previous sentence.
"That," "there" and "just." Learn to begin a sentence with a noun, then use a strong verb, then your predicate when you write short stories, articles or blogs. Takes a bit of practice, but I used the word "just" a lot when I first started writing screenplays. I got rid of that word in a hurry.
i never seem to get rid of "and" .My one sentence can contain so many of and ,and, and, and.I absolutely don't like it and i am working on it to get rid of this over usage of "and's"
