I'm Mik. Model, mother, moron. Future meta-magician. Former logic clinician.
My better half and I own Brainfood Bookstore in Longmont, Colorado. It is the only exclusively indie- and local-lit bookstore in the nation. We meet a lot of crazy folks.
Testimonial from a former roommate:
"Living with you was like living with a quiet little opinionated deer person who floated around like a ghost and said smart/nutso things and ate seaweed. "
I love Colorado. I love mountains. I love hiking. I read and write. I raise my children to the best of my ability. I have lupus and have defeated early-stage cancer twice, so I pretty much fully support the use of medical marijuana.

no not adverbs adjectives i thought it said
omg we’re both fucking retarded. you even said like ‘yeah but you need adjectives’ and i was like ‘NO ADVERBS ARE BAD’.
“hey it’s sunny in wichita.”
“NO IT’S FUCKING MISERABLE RIGHT NOW IN BUENOS AIRES.”
in saying this i don’t necessarily agree with this advice because it takes a person who is already pretty skilled to NOT use adjectives in a way that isn’t too wordy i mean you know in a succinct way so it’s kind of a hard thing to do starting out
Yeah but you can only improve a skill by practicing. Adverbs are lazy writing, so practicing writing by using adverbs will get you no where; it’s like practicing for a race by riding a Segway around a track. If you’re going to get better, you have to practice by doing it right, and that means describing things in a way that doesn’t rely on adverbs. If done correctly, it decreases word count (because you’ve got ‘he bolted’ instead of ‘he ran fast,’ ‘she bawled’ instead of ‘she cried loudly and dramatically,’ etc).
more like fuck writing advice YOU CAN’T TEACH BRILLIANCE
That too, but I still think the best way to emulate brilliance is to replace all the adverbs with better verbs.
