Well, Really!

A Rant About Writing
I have a real problem with the word “really,” in all its forms. You see, I really have this tendency to use that particular word, even when it’s not really needed. Now, you may think this is really a minor problem, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it really isn’t. Because really overusing a word, especially one that’s not really necessary, can really weaken a sentence. Which, in turn, really weakens the paragraph, the page, the chapter — hell, it really weakens the whole book.
If you’re a writer, I’m sure you really understand my dilemma. I’m sure you also have a word that you really catch yourself using more than you really need.

Please tell me I’m right.
