I'm not a craft writer, I'm an inspiration writer. I love the sounds and meanings of words and I enjoy creating turns of phrases. I also use adverbs, tastefully. Worse, I don't worry about other writers' rules. These aren't P.C. stances, but I can't put my Muse in Spanx. She's funny that way. What I do strive for is to tell a good story, to make you fall in love with my characters and give you a little respite from your day-to-day life.
