Least Favorite Word:
Impacted is NOT a verb. Traffic is NOT impacted, a tooth or other body parts may become so. It is best used as an adjective under those circumstances to avoid passive voice.
Other subscribers who dislike this word:
"Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer."
