verbs, strong like ox
The best way to get rid of a lot of extraneous adverbs and adjectives:
USE STRONG VERBS.

One slightly-unusual verb can conjure an entire scene:
Theodosia greedily ate the entire plate of food.
Theodosia snarfed the anti-pasto.
Fabio walked slowly down the hall, like he hadn’t a care in the world.
Fabio sauntered down the hall.
The boy’s mother pushed him into studying proctology against his will.
The boy’s mother steamrolled him into studying proctology.
Yeah. THERE’S a word picture.
