"(write with nouns and verbs, people)"As a person who generally considers herself to be a fairly solid writer, I must say, it's difficult to emphasize this enough.Adverbs especially should be avoided. People should brush up on their action verbs vocabulary, and try to find an alternative that adds the desired description without the use of an adverb."Swiftly walked" = Hurried"Arguing loudly" = Squabble or BickeredJust to name two off the top of my head.Good writing typically is characterized by being clear and concise.
