Advantageous Adjectives

 

 

 

Advantageous Adjectives

An adjective is probably the best kept secret of a successful writer, when used properly of course. An adjective modifies, and in most cases compliments, a noun or pronoun. It adds spice and flavour to a noun or pronoun and allows the reader to experience a deeper sense of appreciation for your work. If adjectives are expertly utilized in your sentences with precise timing and volume, everything you compose will shine and quiver with an aura of real life.

Listed below are a few examples of sentences WITHOUT the interjection of an adjective or two. Take notice of these same examples AFTER being punched up and sprinkled with a spattering of cleverly inserted adjectives.
