  Tips for Writers by Brad Hyde (April 14, 2008)
 


Perhaps it's Really, Quite . . .

Did you ever, "Just wonder why you use 'just'?" Perhaps you are quite certain of something. Does that make you more than certain? How could that be?

Then again, sometimes we really have fun. Is "real" fun more fun than fun all by itself?

Perhaps you've really had quite enough from me! No matter. Be aware that the little words, the "perhaps we can have lunch," can confuse or are plain unnecessary.

Check your writing carefully to see if you are overusing these little words.
