Breaking up with bad writing habits

Dear Filter Words,

I feel that we have been together a long time. It seems as if  you have always been by my side, whenever I put pen to page, eager to insert yourself. By adding you it was as though there was a veil created between my writing and the reader, and I finally realized that in many ways you were responsible.

After much soul searching, I have decided that you and I will have to part. While I have considered various alternatives, the truth is that we do not suit each other. I reckon that, what with one thing and another, you are getting in the way.

sincerely,

Me

Dear Filter Words, Dear Filter Words,
I feel that we have been together a long time. We have been together a long time.
It seems as if  you have always been by my side, whenever I put pen to page, eager to insert yourself in my writing.  You have always been eager to insert yourself in my writing.
By adding you, it is as though there were a veil created between my writing and the reader , and I finally realized that in many ways you were responsible. Adding filter words created a veil between my writing and the reader.
 After much soul searching, I have decided that you and I will have to part. You and I will have to part.
 While I have considered various alternatives, the truth is that we do not suit each other. We do not suit each other.
I reckon that, what with one thing and another, you are getting in the way.  You are in my way.

Dear Filter Words,

We have been together a long time. You have always been eager to insert yourself in my writing. Adding filter words created a veil between my writing and the reader.

You and I will have to part. We do not suit each other. You are in my way.

sincerely,

Me
