vibrant verbs

My K-12 English teacher friends use this term: vibrant verbs. I like the alliteration, the movement, the zing. Toni Morrison also said somewhere that the verb is the most important element of the sentence. Verbs venture valuable variety. Should I apologize for that painful alliteration? Maybe not today.

So get your verb diva on. Tussle with a sentence, harangue a paragraph, coax a revision. Then steal a well-deserved nap from your crowded linguistic schedule.
