Verbal advice

Writers advise
Avoid indirect verbs
Was, were, there, is
And all elle-why ad-words

Keep active the subject
And vibrant the verb
Avoid extra adjectives
They grate on the nerve

Now that's perfectly clear
The rules hard and fast
Forget what you know
Write from the heart

Self-doubt will undo
Over-confidence can too
So here's the best clue
Just do, do, do, do!
