A Writing tip - Author - George Lasher 

Avoid using the word, was, whenever possible. Was is a weak verb of being that avoids detail rather than providing readers with additional description that might help them feel more connected to the characters.
 
The sentence, Bob said he was sick, is not nearly as descriptive as Bob claimed he might throw up at any moment.
