Avoid using Adverbs
What are adverbs? Adverbs are modified verbs. They tell us when, where, how, in what manner, or to what extent an action is performed.
Many end in “ly” and a lot do not, such as fast, never, well, very, most, least, more, less, now, far and there to name a few.
“Adverbs are the tool of the lazy writer.”
~ Mark Twain ~
“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
~ Stephen King ~
I can see the finish line in sight. Have a great weekend and happy reading.
