According to Stephen King (in his book On Writing) adjectives and adverbs should rarely be used, though he admits that he is guilty of using them himself. But to me, this seems a bit ridiculous. After all, can't adverbs help better highlight an action, and aren't adjectives great to paint a clear picture in the reader's head? And, if you pick up any classic, you'll find more adjectives then you could count on one thousand hands! So, tell me, in your opinion, is it a bit naive to be so against the usage of these? Is there some precaution we should take against adverb and adjective usage, so as not to overuse, or is there really no line?
