THE BOOK OF ADVERBS
Slyly introduce your plot with a clever narrative hook,
Assuming optimistically, you'll successfully market your book.
Darkly hint at omens with flashback and foreshadowing
To shrewdly draw the reader down a pathway ever narrowing.
Cleverly hide the subtle red herrings you've brilliantly sewn in the seams.
Break the fourth wall clearly, but sparingly, and consistently play to your theme.
Slowly build up the tension describing the scene of the crime.
Lean heavily on ironies made perfectly clear over time.
Draw conclusions starkly, deliciously savor the feel
Of quietly leading the reader to joyfully find the reveal.
