Tautology

I love correcting texts for tautology.
The previous post is full of dull repetition and is a reminder of hours spent polishing bits of prose before they could be unleashed upon the public.

The best thing about a blog is that it can be corrected, even years later, and if the reader does not like what they see, they can tidy it up for themselves.

Alas, I found no tautology in the previous post. Perhaps I encountered the corrected version?

Tell me of the tautology! :)

I seem to have hidden tracks better than I thought, perhaps?

"Gang" and "tragic" are a bit too obvious for me.

Roget's "Thesaurus" used keep short pieces fresh in the past.

Shall address energy to finding synonyms to add variety.

It's like playing a word version of "Patience".
