Word Play

I just did an echo word search of my current WIP. Echo words are those ones we get stuck on and use repeatedly, therefore sucking away their awesome goodness and making the author sound like a vocab-challenge twit. So while reading these chapters aloud, which I highly suggest, I jotted down these words that seemed overused:

Playful
Throb
Need
Thrum
Power
Potent
Danger(ous)
Hum

Guess how much blazing hot fun my book is right now? Tolstoy it's not.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again. I love my job. Don't let my grumpiness all week fool you, coz I was in a shitty mood.
