Adverb Hell

For my sins I am revising the MS today. A search for ‘ly’ found 584 instances – so other than a handful of legitimate uses (‘family’ ‘belly’ ‘lyric’ ‘polyester’) I have a great many bits of sloppy ugly writing to amend.

Mea culpa.

Oh look, there’s another one. I just typed ‘ugly’.

“Help me, I’m melting” she screeched, drippily.
