I've read that adverbs make writing seem weak and childish. I can see that with all the "ly" words. However, I've read that adjectives do the same thing? Do you guys agree with that? should adjectives also be avoided whenever possible? does that make writing seem more professional? I recently read "The Murder of Roger Akroyd" and this book is LOADED with adverbs and everyone loves it including me. I did spot out the tons of adverbs but the story was still awesome.. I'm confused, what do you guys think?
