It Seems I Use Some Words A Lot

Back to the 30-day blogging challenge. Today's prompt is "What word/phrase do you use constantly?"

In my writing, I have a bad habit of using "seem" or "seems" a lot. It's to the point that when I finish a first draft, I do a search on "seem" and try to eliminate most if not all of them. It seems I like that word, a lot.

Sometimes I use "but" a lot, too. This seems to be when I'm not sure of myself, writing a synopsis, for example. A friend of mine who proofreads for me says I drive her crazy with my use of "but," often to start a paragraph or a sentence.

But I don't always do that.
