Writers Anonymous Meeting #2

I received another critique the other day. I know, I know:

"Traci, you're on Critique Circle; these things will happen."

I'm not complainin', I swear! It just brought to my attention that...well, let me get this meeting started, and I'll tell you all about it.

*Ahem* "Hear ye, hear ye! Let this second official meeting of the This Particular Chapter of Writers Anonymous come to order!"

(Clever chapter name, yeah? Yeah? No? Dang it. That's what I get for procrastinatin'. All naming suggestions welcome.)

Hi, my name is Traci, and I'm...addicted to adjectives.

I know, right? Pretty horrific. I've got it bad, too! I'll list four or five adjectives to describe one single action! Geez, it's so bad, it drove me to drinking. (I had a lovely post-dinner glass of wine tonight.) Even going into a new chapter aware of my problem, I STILL made the same mistake. Granted, to a lesser degree, but it was still present. I'll be doubly watchful in the next chapter, I suppose.

So? Anyone else have anything to confess?

    Hi, I'm Dippy (AKA Gemma) and I'm addicted to ... *sigh ... brief pause* ... the gerund and all other word forms that end in 'ing'. And the word 'As'.

  2. Thanks for sharing. We'll get through this together!
