Stop Using the Word ‘Very’

Of course, you don’t need to stop using the word ‘very’.

But good writers avoid it, as it’s often overused and can sound a bit boring.

So what can we do instead?

Expand our vocabulary.

Here are some examples:

very nice = charming
very boring = dreary, tedious
very clean = spotless
very cold = freezing
very deep = bottomless
very difficult = complex
very dirty = filthy
