Many writers have offered advice that can help new writers. A few of my favorites:
- Adverbs and adjectives are most detrimental to precision and concision. — Susan Bell
- Adverbs and adjectives are for first drafts. Replace them with stronger verbs, metaphors or actions.
- Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and, well, you get the point.
- There’s great power in words, if you don’t use too many of them. — Josh Billings
