nouns and verbs

Prefer nouns and verbs to adjectives and adverbs. Adverbs and adjectives are the assistants –stress the nouns and verbs. Avoid things like: a tall skyscraper; she smiled happily. Stephen King says “Seldom use adverbs,” although he does employ them. Try to eliminate adverbs by finding a strong verb to take its place.
