This episode focuses on words and phrases that indicate a potential problem with your prose. The group stresses that this is a late-in-the-game editing concern, but it is helpful to practice recognizing these as you go along.
Tracey and Jess compete to explain their ‘as’ problem, and Anne brings the word "when" onto the chopping block. The group also discusses the problems with "started to" and "decided to," and plays a game of Shrink That Tautology.
