Tuesday Tip: Use Strong Verbs

Verbs are the main source of energy in your sentences. Weak verbs rely on adverbs for their meaning.

You can sharpen a verb by making it more precise, such as:

  • Instead of look, you could use: stare, gaze, gawk, or peak
  • Instead of throw, you could use: toss, pitch, hurl, or flip

Verbs should be in charge, so make them count.
