Hack The Flab

I edit.

So I see my fair share of flab.

I know what to look for, but 396-and-counting examples of flab is hard to spot…even for me.

I got tired of flab slipping through my initial hawk-eye edit, so I created a lazy-bastard crutch macro that finds and highlights all the flab.

I’m sharing this list with you (in 10-item chunks). It took me months to compile, so you better appreciate it, dammit! ;)

Flabby words/phrases kill your writing and waste your readers’ time.  The following posts explain why certain words and phrases represent flab:
