I know I've lamented here before about "that" word. You know...the four letter word T-H-A-T.
It weakens your prose -- oh no!
So, once again, I spent the day going through my current WIP under the "find" option and removing 90% of the "that"'s.
She worried that he wouldn't come becomes She worried he wouldn't come
She knew that he would be late becomes She knew he would be late
I don't even realize I'm using it like I do until I go back and spend an afternoon cleaning up the mess
Tell Me: Do you have an issue with THAT word too?
