I have a confession to make: Every time Jack Reacher looks to the side (and trust me, he does it A LOT) I want to slap him, but I like everything else about the series from Lee Child so I keep reading.
We all have our writing quirks and we all have our reading quirks, which is why I thought I’d along one of my favorite lines from a review of FURTHER CONFESSIONS OF A SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC HITWOMAN.
“The writing suffers from an abundance of forward slashes: and/or, dater/marry-er, etc.” Library Journal Reviews
Huh! I had no idea I do that, but after thinking about it, I realized the reviewer is right. Lesson learned.
Long Suffering rants about the fact I use “sidling” too often, so I’ve made a conscious effort to stop using it.
Can you think of any quirks your favorite authors display? Or any you’re guilty of using yourself?
