Pet Peeves - Are You Making Agents, Editors, and Readers Crazy?

Author Don't Care, Agent/Editor/Reader Pet Peeves - An extensive list of literary peeves.  You may want to double check your WIP for these.

One of my favorites (and a huge oops!):
“Characters in YA novels who seem like the embodiment of one giant teen cliche, spewing every contemporary slang term the 40-year-old author could overhear at her daughter's cheerleading contest.”
As a bonus, the post includes an informational video about "bad ass" honey badgers.  Who knew? ;)  (Caution: Contains profanities)
