Just say no to just. You just don’t need it. Sometimes this filler word just slips out, especially right before a verb where it just adds no value. It just happens. Just forgive yourself, and just move on. You might notice that, just when you think you’ve licked the habit, it just creeps up on you again. But just don’t worry about it. With practice, you can just banish this tic. You’ll strengthen your writing — just like that.
