Cut adverbs for stronger writing

Looking for a way to strengthen your writing?

Reducing your use of adverbs can help. That's the point of "Am I afraid of adverbs?" a blog post by Roy Peter Clark at Poynteronline.

Clark's analysis of the adverbs in two paragraphs convinced me they were superfluous.

You've again given me something to think about. I'll have to mark all the adverbs in a sampling of my writing to see if I am using too many. Thanks for the tip!
