Why Adverbs Are The Tequila Of Writing Dialogue

Why Adverbs Are The Tequila Of Writing Dialogue


Now the rewrite:

I have removed adverbs and added action to show, instead of tell.

Why it’s better

Using action makes the story immediate. It also stops you from creating unwieldly words that your reader will have to reread. Look at your last piece of dialogue and try using an action instead of an adverb.
