What To Avoid To Be A Better Writer.

A while ago I read an article on my favorite topic---avoiding adverbs. Stephen King once said, "The road to hell is paved with adverbs," and I believe him. Adverbs as with adjectives, can weaken good writing for numerous reasons.

I found the blog on The Screenwrightist: Writing Tips on fictional storytelling for screenwriter, playwright, and novelist. The article titled, Why Good Writers Avoid Adverbs and Adjectives, covers the following topics: Lean, Powerful Prose, Specific Images, Actions, Being True to Character, Too Much Unnecessary Text, and Using Only Necessary Words.
