I like “ly” words and I cannot lie.
It’s adverbs that I can’t deny…
Confession time: I really like using adverbs in my writing, especially the “ly” ones.
You’re not supposed to…or at the very least, it’s suggested that you keep them to a minimum. :animenope
But they’re just so much fun & they roll so easily off the tongue & fingertips.
(In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve already used about seven of them in this post. :seesawkiss )
Here are a few that I catch myself using on a fairly regular basis…
And some that don’t end in “ly” but are adverbs all the same…
Can you think of any I use on a regular basis that I may have missed? :animpeekaboo
Or even more that I may want to use in the future? :lipstick
My stupid cold kept me from posting about this sooner, but it’s still a great bit of news, so we can still celebrate! :cheerswedding
Thanks so much for the wonderful honor, Kathy! :lipstick
This is very exciting news, not only because I adored working on Dean & Erica’s story, but because it helps to draw attention back to a collection of sexy, animal-infused stories that raises funds for a very good cause! :lovecat
In case you need a refresher…
