The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

I do a lot of editing for small publishers and one of the things I see a
lot in the manuscripts I work on are weedy words. These weedy words are
also known as weak modifiers. Writers tend to use these words hoping to
intensify the meaning of a word or phrase. They also use them without
knowing it because most people write as they would talk. However, when
you use weedy words what happens is we tend to prop our sentences or
paragraphs up with a modifier, which may have been strong once but is
now weak from overuse.
