Most used words

I’d forgotten all about the nifty WordCounter tool until today it popped back into my head. I have put together a bunch of my flash fiction and was curious to see if there were any over used words. I tried to guess what those words might be. “Salt” maybe, I know I use that quite often. But nope, my most frequently used word was “look” followed by “one” “back” “over” and “go”. It was only after I sent my manuscript off that I realised if I put those most used words together they form a message.  “Go look back over one.”

Oops.

I also favour “say” “think” “get” “want and “watch” which I think flows quite well. As does “head” and “down.”

My list of 25 ends with “mouth” “little” “hand.”

What are yours?
