    “Very” is the first word I search my document for and remove after I finish my first draft. I have a list of 150-200 words that I filter and find a better choice. Thanks for the list!

      Fabulous! My “search fors” include “ly” to kill all those evil adverbs (thanks, Stephen King) and “;” because I seem to have a thing for semi-colons… Keep up the great work.
