Excessively used adverbs are annoyingly common.

Recently in writerly circles, the use of adverbs has been unfairly dubbed as “poorly selected word use.”  I hardly think using an adverb means a writer is lazily choosing their words.  Practically all authors use adverbs occasionally.  Harshly judged criticisms of virtually all “–ly” words are unnecessarily extreme.
