Hack and Slash (not the D&D kind)

I’m in the process of rewriting, which means choosing which of your old words lives and which ones die. Adverbs… good grief am I finding a lot of adverbs. Not college freshman numbers but more than I think I should have. They really do just fill in space, too. I am clearing them away like brush fires clear dry grass. You never think you’re writing unnecessary words at the time but the proof is right before your eyes, and they have grown like weeds in the manuscript. Time to trim.
