It may sound sexy, but it isn't—not in a strong narrative, anyway.
The copulative verbs are linking verbs. That is, they link the subject to the verb; therefore, they describe; therefore, they are static rather than active. Strong narrative consists of strong sentences, and a strong sentence is built on a strong verb, so use the copulatives sparingly.
Copulative verbs that describe the subject with an adjective: be: My suspicions were correct. appear: The key appears to be missing. feel: Roseanne feels sick. look: That kid looks neglected. prove: The task proved to be backbreaking. seem: The cake seems to be done. smell: And the cake smells fabulous. sound: The music sounds so tinny. taste: The sauce tastes salty. become: Benjamin had become boring. come: Mom came downstairs. fall: She had fallen ill. get: Later she got better. go: And she went back upstairs. grow: Frankie grew pale. keep: Everyone must keep calm. remain: The cat remained aloof. stay: I just couldn’t stay away. turn: Alanna’s face turned bright red. Copulative verbs that describe the subject by declaring it to be something: be: Harry was a thin, uncertain man. become: The controversy was becoming a nuisance. remain: The results of the experiment remain a secret. prove: That kid proved to be an angel. seem: It seemed to be a hurricane. constitute: The summit talks constituted a diplomatic breakthrough. turn into: His fear turned into an obsession. amount to: An autobiography amounts to a revelation of yourself.
