I quite like the quote above. As I write and as I wrote yesterday in a project that will probably take me a few years to complete, I am aware of how terrible adverbs can be. They can take a perfect sentence and turn it into a catastrophe. If used properly and sparingly they can enhance it.
Yesterday I wrote for an hour or more and sadly that means I only filled a page and a half, there was a lot of staring out of the window and squinting done . In between all of that was some writing.
Today will, hopefully, bring more words but I am a firm believer that long gazes out of windows and intense focused stares at blank pieces of paper are the road to a writers success.
That and few adverbs.
