technique mastered there is always a niggling aspect that you hadn’t
considered before. The building blocks of prose are exactly that:
pieces to build on not fancy writing that sounds good to the ear and is
pleasing to the eye. Metaphor and simile, personification, assonance and consonance
work with the noun, verb, adjective, and conjunction to create and
balance out writing that means something to the reader.
Your work will never stand as it was meant to if it skims ideas and uses adverbs
& unassociated imagery like wallpaper and drapery.
