I use the word 'almost' almost a million times in three hundred pages. I swear. Everything is 'almost'. 'Almost painfully'; 'almost laughed'; 'almost screamed'. Almost, almost, almost. Except when I use 'nearly'.
Jesus Christ. It's like I can't commit to anything. It's almost enough to make me want to cry. Nearly.
Okay, back to editing. Only 94 pages to go! Almost!
