					STRONG VERBS

Ways to Strengthen verbs:

1.) Visualize the action clearly and try to think
  of a more specific word.

2.) Try to replace two-part verbs (verbs that
  have a preposition attached to them—“beat up,
  “go up”)

3.) Try to replace verbs that need an adverb. Is
  there one word that could say both? (turn
  quickly to _________)

4.) Try to limit use of is, am, was, and were to
  one per paragraph. You may need to rearrange
  sentences.
