While writing, it occurred to me that I do in fact need some help with this
stupid WIP of mine.
For one, I’m sick of seeing the word “smiled” and I don’t like the alternatives I come up with. How many different ways can you say smiled? And why are all my characters smiling?! And no, I don’t like the phrase, “lips curled up” BLAH!!
What do you do when this happens?! I don’t want all of my characters’ lips curling up and don’t want to always say “smiling.” HELP!! What do you suggest?
And another thing. Do you write the word “alright” which technically isn’t a word at all. It’s “all right.” I’ve been writing “all right” not “alright” but it seems as if a lot of people are using the “alright” instead of “all right.” What’s your opinion?
Why do I feel a sense of urgency?!
This WIP is tearing me apart!
Whining and griping over now. Thanks for the help in advance.
