So I'm taking a college management class, and there is a lot of work.
Last week I had to write about six 1-3 page papers summarizing various articles on the evolution of management, as well as the timeline of the creation of the library system.
I got the papers back today.
My professor said, “Your tone is a little dry. If you'd put some life into your transitions, you could be a good writer.”
On Facebook and Twitter last month we talked about common words we dislike for no real reason.
I have a whole list. How do you know you have a really good friend? When you have some of the same words on the list few know you're even keeping.
I have never used the word “delicious.” I hate that one. I have no idea why. I've never heard anyone in my family say it either, so it must be on their list.
I also hate the word “kiddos.” You hear that a lot as a teacher. It makes me cringe.
“Emotions.” That word is dead to me.
What about you? Any every day words that are on your “ick” list?
I don’t like the word “Theodore”, but thats a name. I don’t like the word “fallacy”.
And Jenny, you already are a good writer! 🙂
