I’m not saying never to use the words make or made, but avoid them when you can.
Don’t make a reservation, recommendation, proposal, improvement, reduction, suggestion, donation, revision, or change.
Instead, reserve, recommend, propose, suggest, revise or change. You get the idea. You can use the “search and destroy” function on your computer to find all your uses of make or made in a document, and then get rid of those fillers when possible.
