Please understand that in this thread we will talk about our own personal areas where we know we have room for improvement. Not your pet peeves or bête noires in the work of others. Since the idea of reviewing work is actually to improve oneself, I though it might be mete to acknowledge where we can improve. Mine are: 1) When I reread my work I notice a horrible habit of missing little words like articles and conjunctions. I was thinking them. I could have sworn I typed them, but no. I am wrong. They are missing. 2) I am too verbose. I pick long structures when shorter ones would be better. I let the length over quality dynamic get the better of me. Yours?
