Mel's Procrastination Palace
Wednesday, August 10, 2005 And That's That

I should hate Angie for publicly humiliating me with my obsession with "that". I should be ashamed of myself for the numerous (as in over 1% of the total word count!) times I used "That" in my current WIP.

It's an illness, I tell ya.
But sometimes "that" has to be there. I keep telling myself that (<---see?), but I can't seem to find a proper alternative to so many of the uses. "That's what I'm talking about.".... (who wants to formalize it, in dialogue no less.)

That is the new pronoun referring to "what I just said"....

But, alas, they don't see that, Angie and the other bitches who CLEARLY like to see me suffer. (tee hee). They want me to thaticate my ms. *whine*

Ah well, that's that.
