Fun With Line Edits

Or why line edits can be hard.

Comment from Alissa:  You used “take” three times in this paragraph.

Me:  Seriously?  Oh.  Gawd.  I did.  Hmmm.  I need a new word for take.  Confiscate?

He wants me whimpering, begging, pleading, held down and helpless before he confiscates me.

Er, no.  Wrong synonym.  Get?  Well, it might be awhile before Tecun “gets” Cassie in that sense.

Obtain? Receive?  *headdesk*  No No No!

Before he procures me?

*looks at clock*

Geez, I’ve spent 30 minutes trying to replace one “take.”

Calgon, confiscate me away!
