#SpankAtoZ V is for

Very.

Very is one of those words that a writer should search for in their manuscript and attempt to eliminate as much as possible.

Why? Because usually if you are using very to describe something, chances are there is a better, more descriptive and more interesting word.

Very hot---scalding, boiling, scorching

Very tired---fatigued, exhausted, worn-out

Very rich---wealthy, loaded

Get the idea?

This is a tip I need to remember for myself too.
