The Vacation is Over

My sister has gone, and my pseudo-vacation is over. It is back to the grind, or rather the slush pile in this case. I've been perusing my potential fare, and so far I have nothing bad to report. Oh, there's a ton, and I think it might bury me alive, but none of it is improperly formatted or submitted in a bizarre way. Bravo! I think I may be getting through. At least, that's what I like to think. I'm sure it's just coincidence.

Hi Buried Editor,

In lots of the reading I've done on writing, the author says to avoid adjectives and adverbs like the plague. I understand much of this is from a show don't tell perspective. Yet in much of the reading I do, I still see plenty of adjectives and adverbs. What are your thoughts on this and when is it OK for the author to use these? I guess what I'd like to see from you if possible are some examples when you feel it is OK to use adverbs.
