"As to the adverb: when in doubt, strike it out." Mark Twain said that.
I agree. Long time gentle writers may remember me saying "Highlight adverbs in your manuscript with a black Marksalot." Now, we know that's silly. If you're using a black marker, you're not highlighting. You're striking it out just like Mr. Clemens said.
