On adverbs, again

To Adverb or Not to Adverb

So, I had a rant regarding adverbs and the witch hunt against them.  This guy here does a podcast about the topic and while the topic still ruffles me, I can respect him because he does not agree with the “all adverbs must be eliminated” stance that so many people knee-jerk subscribe to.  He actually gives some guidance on when using them would actually be appropriate.  That, I can get behind.

Also, I highly recommend ProWritingAid, especially the Word add in.  It’ll help highlight some of the sticking points that some people hang up on.   This way, you can meet people halfway in tweaking the wording where needed.
