- When every character is rich and attractive, and the author constantly tells me how rich and attractive they are;
- Blocks and blocks of uninteresting, flat dialogue that reek of cliche and deft of wit;
- When character descriptions read like text in Saks Fifth Avenue catalogs. Describing every stitch of clothing your rich and attractive character wears? Really?;
- Adverb abuse coupled with 'said'. In other words: "...," she said moronically. "..." he said amusedly. "..." I said laughingly.
