I recently had an epiphany on what it was that pushes a story passed be ok to being good. The overuse of adjectives seems to be a common mistake up and coming writers, or those who think they're good at writing, use. Bland verbs is the other. If you want to make a story interesting work on interesting verbs instead of overloading it with adjectives to the point that it sounds corny. Thoughts and other ideas on what makes a writer good?
