Wait… guys are allowed??? *hollers for the hubby*
I try to use a certain amount of repetition to add a sense of creepy rhythm. But yeah, I might be able to get the seem out of there (hehe I made a pun). I hate that I’m not a walking thesaurus, so I have a habit of using the same words over and over again in a dialogue like “smiled” and “chuckled” and “laughed” Grr… I realized this as I was finally typing up my YA.
