Jazzy Writing Prairie Chick

The flood water has receded to the edge of the road so it looks like the danger has passed for this year.

Meanwhile, I'm blogging over at Prairie Chicks Write Romance about the use of rhetorical devices in writing.

Rhetorical devices are things like metaphors, similies, alliteration, and hyperboles. I give references for dozens of others. Everything to liven up your writing and give your reader a satisfying literary experience without them realizing why.

And if you're wondering about the big words (like I was) don't because most writers use these all the time without realizing it. Knowing the term isn't necessary, but using it is fun.

My questions for discussion today are:

Do you use rhetorical devices in your wips?
Do you feel there’s a place for them in the modern fast-paced 55,000 word romance books? What’s your favorite rhetorical device?
