One of my latest challenges is facing the fact that I overuse the words would, should, could in my writing. There's nothing like reading a scene I wrote a few years ago and realize how weak it sounds. Ugh!
The good thing is I can improve it before I submit somewhere. I'm not saying to never use these words. It's just best not to overuse them. If only I could break the habit, I would be a better writer. I really should work on this. 😓
