Just a light-hearted thread. It's probably been done before, but I can't find it, so here goes! I've been editing some passages I wrote a while back and a few pet phrases keep coming up. I generally try to avoid repetition while writing, but I seem to love these ones so much that they slip under the radar. Now that I've recognised them, I expect that to end! Mine are: A bitter edge entering someone's voice. Something being hardly surprising, or any variation on that you can think of. I've probably got many others that it will take beta readers to point out. What are yours? Or are you perfect?
