Creative Writing Tips on Action Verbs #1: Vivid Verbs Are Powerful Verbs:
Verbs energize. An action verb generates more drama and emotion than a noun, adjective or adverb of similar meaning. Compare:
The children wept when their dog died. (Strong verbs: wept, died)
The children shed tears over the death of their dog. (Nouns: tears, death)
The children were sad when their dog was dead. (Weak verb to be + adjectives: sad, dead)
Use vivid verbs, powerful verbs, to fizz up the action, paint word-pictures, and evoke feelings in your readers.
