WIP Wednesday

June 15, 2011 | WIP Wednesday

Recently I read an interview with an editor whose pet peeve was the word it, especially when used as the opening of a new sentence. A few days later a writer friend mentioned what a turn off all the its found in an opening paragraph were.

Frankly, the word it never waved any flags at me. But when the same subject pops up more than once in the span of a few days, I have a superstitious urge to pay attention. Does the word it irritate you, gentle reader?

Are there any words or phrases that make your teeth gnash? Leave comments or forever hold your peace. :lol:
