Those Irksome Repeated Phrases

One of the real boons of having interrupted writing time is being able to see the same banal groups of words popping up page after page.

Or am I the only writer who does this?

Maybe I shouldn't admit it.

Too late now.

If I revise my manuscript chapter by chapter instead of in larger chunks, those overworked phrases scurry into hiding. In response to the Write Brainer's Olympic Challenge, I have ignored most other responsibilities to work on draft #6. My sustained effort has allowed me to identify many redundancies.

Perhaps I should refer to it as Project Eradication.
