star wars legacy

Some philosophy spoken by a puppet in a space opera film from my childhood has affected my writing I believe -

a few times a week, I backspace over the word "trying" - I've worked to eliminate "Try" from my vocabulary. I often replace it with "working" - as in, "I'm working to get ahold of my popcorn addiction." I don't like "try" very much, as it seems non-committal. Are you doing something? Or trying to do something? "Try" lacks fullness of action. I don't think I'm too muscular in my prose or outlook, but I do value full-body participation.
