Adverbs and adjectivesA Lesson by Mel
The evil of advs. and adjs.
This is a problem I am constantly having.
Right now, if you go to my writing and see what I've been cookin' in the kitchen,
it won't take you long to point out my use of over-the-top, flowery language when trying to describe the events happening in my stories.
That's because trying to explain the storyline without overdoing it is pretty f*****g difficult.
I've seen plenty of my fellow Writers' Cafe writers doing this as well, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet because we all have places to be and faces to see.
ADVERBS AND ADJECTIVES WILL WEIGH DOWN YOUR STORY AND RUIN THE ACTION!!!
1."I love him!" She said happily.
And go for:
"I love him!" She exclaimed, throwing her hands up in glee.
And forget ever using these words in any case, or I will find you.
4. Sad (sadly)
5. Happy (happily)
6. Mad (madly)
^^^THESE ARE BORING A*S WORDS AND YOU WILL BORE YOUR AUDIENCE TO DEATH IF YOU USE THEM, K?
Nobody has to die.
Excite your audience. Use thesaurus.com whenever you need to spice up that vocab.
End of lesson.
