“Interesting” is such an uninteresting word.

I try to avoid it when I write, especially in formal settings, because “interesting” tends to be used when the speaker or writer cannot think of anything else to say. As such, its meaning has become very ambiguous, and is hard for the reader to decipher.

I use it as a placeholder while I type, but I inevitably return to change it to something more interesting expressive, specific, and fitting.
