Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very'; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

Ann Landers

Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.

Use the apostrophe in it's proper place and omit it when its not needed.
