“If you catch an adjective, kill it.” ~Mark Twain
Think about the implications this statement has for your writing. Can, or should, we do away with adjectives? No, I don’t think that’s what he meant. But I do think trying to write without them as an exercise might help us become more aware of words we use that we don’t need.
Here’s the challenge: write at least one scene or chapter in your book, or an article, without using adjectives.
