This free eBook, “Literary Devices to Improve Your Creative Writing Style” will help you use rational, discriminating, judicious judgement in your writing style. The word “style,” like the words “religion,” “goodness,” and “patriotism,” implies a vague, hazy sort of excellence which most of us would have a hard time defining. The old cigarette magazine advertisements have style (after its fashion); the black-and-white newspaper classified advertisement has none. The news blog account of the latest natural disaster has style; the schedule of TV programs has none. Gibbon’s History of Rome has style; a mathematics textbook has none. Style is that virtue in writing which makes it more than merely comprehensible. Authors like Stephen King, Faulkner, and Hemingway have a special talent and sensitivity beyond what mere training and writing advice can do for them. But training and advice can help any intelligent writer clamber from the lower stages of writing to the upper stages of writing. This eBook is intended to give advice and foster training that will hasten the ascent to become a better creative writer. Literary Devices to Improve Your Creative Writing Style covers: 1) CONTROL, showing the writer how to pick the one word he wishes to emphasise; the one phrase he wishes to plant in the mind of his reader; the one clause which he wishes to make linger and ferment. 2) STRUCTURE, showing the writer how to use parallel structures to connect two or more ideas of equal importance. 3) POSITION, showing the writer how to capitalise on formulating the perfect beginning and end for his story. 4) CONTINUITY, showing the writer how to make sure his story’s elements are tight and snug, and each part is locked hard and fast to its neighbouring parts. A few literary devices can help the writer achieve this continuity. Some of these concern the continuity of ideas; some the continuity of paragraphs; and some the continuity of sentences. Ace Approved!
