Presidents have people.
I have . . .
well, I have people, but not in the same sense.
What I have are go-to things (for lack of a better word) that I fall back on if I'm stressed or out of time or have to make a quick choice.
For instance - for dinner it's baked chicken or chili mac. Movies - a romantic comedy. Snack - anything with tortilla chips.

Anyway, moving on. I just finished inputting the final editing changes on what was my work in progress. Surprise-surprise, I learned I also have go-to words. I use these words when I talk, too, so I suppose I shouldn't have been so surprised I used them so often in my manuscript and didn't notice they were there.
I attacked those suckers in the same way I'd attack that bowl of guacamole up there and showed them who was boss. Not many of the greatest offenders remain. I learned a lot.
How about you?
Have you ever learned you had a go-to that you weren't aware of?
