Write with nouns and verbs.

No disrespect intended toward the other six parts of speech, but nouns and verbs are the meat and bones of writing.

Everything else is garnish.

Get your nouns right.

Make them concrete and specific.

Use cardigan instead of sweater and linebacker instead of football player.

Don’t philosophize about suffering when you could introduce your reader to a Marine widow and her fatherless infant.

And make your verbs lively.

Don’t walk if you can meander or strut.

Don’t just hit if you can slap, thump or pummel.

Writers should value every word, but wise writers give special attention to nouns and verbs.

      Although I find this comment here rather strange & unintelligible, I will allow it.
      I wouldn’t want to be accused of censorship!
