Please stop and read this useful post. Follow the advice and strengthen your writing and blogging skills.

Thank you to Marte Cliff who re-blogged Tatyana's excellent list of "better than very" words.

I appreciated the quotes, especially this one

“Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

~Mark Twain

WORDS TO USE INSTEAD OF "VERY"

I use "VERY" all the time... and maybe only half of column #2...Do you?

Here is a short list.... But I found out - at list 147 words can be used instead.

 

Three Telling Quotes About ‘Very’

  1. “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain
  2. “‘Very’ is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out. More than useless, it is treacherous because it invariably weakens what it is intended to strengthen.” ~Florence King
  3. “So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys – to woo women – and, in that endeavour, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.” ~N.H. Kleinbaum

This post has got some legs Michelle! A worthy reblog for sure, I saw Barbara Todaro's first then went to the source, Tatyana.
