Once upon a time I wrote this post. I just read it and it cracked me up. Because it is STILL TRUE! I just had a book come out with a main character named Matthew (Restricted Release). I JUST wrote a short with the name Jason in it. And I still do story echoes. Meaning, I will write a short using a name or now, I've added a new thing, an occupation and then echo that somehow in a longer work.
Hey, more bang for your buck, I guess! (or name or occupation).
But I was driving today thinking there are more words I hate. They are just general words though. Not necessarily dirty words you'd find in erotica. But some are. Here goes:
unctuous (every time they say this on the word on The Cooking Channel I cringe)
roomy (I hear Doctor Lecter in my head when I hear this word. "Was she a big girl? Roomy?")
husky (as an adjective, not the dog. I love the dog!)
honey pot (or a pot of any kind)
boobies (the one exception is the Save the Boobies bracelets for breast cancer awareness. I guess my real issue with boobies is hearing a grown man say the word boobies. Hey, grown men, don't say boobies, m'kay? Good. Thanks.)
There! As always, I'd love to hear you words so please share in the comments. Must tell you, that you do not see another words I love section here because um...those words are pretty much the same. Said the writer. Shame, shame, shame on me.
