Try to avoid ‘very’

Mark Twain said, “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”

“Very” is a useless word in the English language. So instead of saying you’re very tired, say you’re exhausted. And instead of saying the concert was very good, say it was superb or excellent.
