Vague versus Vivid
There are a lot of different types of verbs, and, when writing, the verb you choose can be crucial. Authors know this, of course, but it's not always easy to remember to pick the best one. For fun, I want people to pick a single vivid verb. The next person in the topic will then create a single sentence for that vivid verb and share their own for the next person. Let's be creative!
