  1. That’s right. And in an 80-word paragraph decrying the use of adverbs in his book On Writing, Stephen King used five adverbs, which works out to 6.25% of the total verbiage in said paragraph. Wherever the road paved with adverbs may lead, Mr King seems to be well on his way.

  2. I think I slowly read that while I was briskly walking and quickly reading “On writing Well” I could be wrong because I was breathing heavily at the time.
