Thought for the day ...

The great writer Stephen King once said,

I believe the road to hell is paved with adverbs, and I will shout it from the rooftops. To put it another way, they're like dandelions. If you have one on your lawn, it looks pretty and unique. If you fail to root it out, however, you find five the next day... fifty the day after that... and then, my brothers and sisters, your lawn is totally, completely, and profligately covered with dandelions. By then you see them for the weeds they really are, but by then it's—GASP!!—too late.”

 I'm starting to feel the same way about the Biellmann spin. 

And he's right about adverbs ... I'm busily editing the sequel to Ice Charades, keeping the adverbs to a minimum.  Hopefully t(T)he manuscript will please the reader.
