Wednesday word of the week is back! Today's word is redundant. It can mean superfluous or not needed, that which can be omitted without loss, or in my case having to leave the day job at the end of February (to show your sympathy feel free to email me chocolate, or buy my book.) On the plus side I'll have more time for writing and for travelling in the van which means more stories to submit and more photos to share here. Brace yourselves.
In writing it's those words or phrases which don't add anything to the story which are considered redundant.
For example, 'Mary sat down on the floor', or 'The snow fell on Wendy's bare limbs. She felt cold and then she shivered'.
It's been said that a picture can paint a thousand words. If that's true maybe it could make a whole story redundant. Are you artistic? If so, this competition to win a iPad might appeal.
Just in case you're wondering, the picture is to symbolise the possibility of one door opening as another closes.
