Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. "Just" There's a great website called wordcloud. You enter text into it and it creates a picture of all your most used words, with the words you used most being the biggest. I pasted all of the first draft of 'Belly Up' into it and discovered I'd used the word "Just" more than my own protagonist's name. So I went back through the book and cut out hundreds of "justs."
