Writing 101, Day Eight: The Adverb is Not Your Friend

He took her hand like a mother inviting her child for a walk

But both of her eyebrows met and she had a face slightly better than a person who just ate a piece of lemon

With strength, she shook her hand like getting rid of a gecko on her arms

They didn’t share a cup of coffee today
