Using good verbs in memoirs or even all of the stories, are a good way to write a fun and attractive story. Using descriptive verb in a story makes move the picture better with more imagination. Today when we wrote a piece of memoir, we added better and more specific verbs instead of normal stuffs like jump, went, said, ate...
In my memoir I had some of the normal verbs switched to the better and stronger verbs. For example,
"'Walked' down the stairs" was switched to "stepped down the stairs"
"'Went' out of the hotel room" was switched to "'Slipped' out of the hotel room"
"I heard trains 'running' down the hall" was switched to "I heard trains 'clanging' against the wall"
"the bag was opened" was switched to "The bag was zipped wide open."
Like these sentence, using with no strong verbs makes the story's mood go down and makes it boring. When we use the strong verbs, it paints the story better in your head and makes your story interesting i guess.
