I have a terrible writing habit I’m learning to loath.
Whenever I know something is broken or wrong, or I want to leave myself a reminder to fix or tweak, I make notes right in the text surrounded by < >s.
Part of this cleanup process is going through the manuscript and doing away with all those < >s.
Today, I hate < >s. I mean, really hate them. Like deprive them of coffee hate them.
Isn’t everything always way more aggravating when you know you only have yourself to blame?
