Today, so far, I have written one word in a story. One word. And I didn't even increase the word count of that story. I changed a word.
I changed "quietly" to "suspiciously."
It's an adverb for God's sake! Adverbs are second-rate words in the first place. Who the hell needs adverbs anyway, especially dumb, pulpy adverbs like "suspiciously!?"
I'm already thinking of going and deleting it. At least that would double today's progress-- sort of.
