Put Adjectives in Their Places!

Sometimes, we put adjectives in the predicate when they would work better in the subject.

Look at this sentence:

The cub is brown.
"Brown" describes the cub, so it would work best in the subject like this:
The brown cub...

Now ask the MAGIC QUESTION:  What was the brown cub doing?  (It was playing the banjo.)  Add that ACTION to the subject, and you have a great sentence!
       The brown cub played the banjoy loudly.
