It’s easy, even as a novice writer to notice those pesky instances of repetition. There’s another type of repetition that causes problems – repetition of effect. Two sentences that convey the same information or two characters that serve the same role are examples.
1 + 1= 1/2
“When you try to accomplish the same effect twice, the weaker attempt is likely to undermine the power of the stronger one.”
