  1. Excellent reminder. :) I remember the days when I relied on adverbs, because I didn't trust that my readers would know exactly how my characters said something. Now I focus on the actual dialogue line, with no need to add "she said sarcastically." ;)

    1. Oh my gosh, that is how I write, too! I guess I'm not confident enough in my dialogue! Wow, who would have thought?

      Blessings Shelley and thank you, Dawn, for the tips :)

    3. Shelley,
      I often want to put adverbs in, but I try really hard to resist. It has to be really important for me to keep it in.

    1. Jarm,
      Thank you. I am enjoying it so far. I need more time, though, to visit other blogs. I'm hoping to do that tonight.

  5. I have been trying very hard to remember this in my writing. It is difficult for those of us Jennifer refers to as "Adverb Addicts", but it makes total sense. :)
