I am. You are. She is. Obviously, being is essential to existence, so it’s no surprise that to be verbs are essential in writing. (In fact, the previous sentence used three to be verbs. Can you spot them?) We’re the first to admit that it is nearly impossible to write without using an occasional are or is. (In fact, we just used two more!)
