Our Dead Word Cemetery

Inspired by the "Dead Word" post on this blog HERE, we buried over twenty words in our Dead Word Cemetery on Friday.

How did we decide which words to bury? Well, we first discussed words we tend to use way too much in our writing such as good, nice, pretty, and bad. These words, when over-used, can sometimes cause our writing to be a bit bland if we're not careful.We then brainstormed a gigantic list of words we thought should die in our writing (or avoided as much as possible) and then created tombstones to celebrate their lives.
