Remember too, I have articles at my website on the craft of writing if you haven't read them already.
1) Look at the beginning of your sentences. Do the first two or three words need to be there? If you eliminate them, does it make the sentence stronger?
2) This is part of the previous--if you have the word "it" in your sentence, "it" might mean the sentence can be better constructed:
3) Last, run a search for these words in your manuscript and see how many you can eliminate because they are unnecessary:
Often times, the following context shows what those words mean, or the sentence simply doesn't need the word to be there at all. Words like "almost" generally indicate that a stronger sentence can be created.
Do NOT eliminate all of them--that's been a complaint every time I share this list. My advice is meant to get rid of words hindering, not enriching, your story or style.
