This morning I was reading through my curated articles from get pocket. I stumbled on an article, “It’s time to talk abou6t “it’s.” Subtitle definitely was an eye opener for me.
The subtitle is, “It’s overused. It’s lazy. It’s something that should be stopped.”
Yikes, is it possible that I use the word “it’s” in my writing. It’s easy to drop in this little 3 letter word. (Rewrite without it’s. This little word is easy to drop into a sentence.)
As I pondered the subtitle, and read the article I was reminded of my English teacher. I was only in 7th grade, but I recall the ongoing instruction on the topic of overused words.
At the young age of a 7th grade student, I did not know that in my adult world I would become a writer.
Leave me a comment. Your thoughts on the little word, “it’s.”
