Cousin Len’s Wonderful Adjective Cellar – Jack Finney

Here is a nice short story by jack Finney. It is about a magical salt cellar or adjective cellar that lifts off the adverbs and adjectives from his stories and what was left was “the most crisp, sharp writing you’ve ever seen”.

The story is very short, only 1000 words.

I could use an adjective cellar. I’ll check eBay.
