on Self Publishing School:
All writing is made up of literary devices.
Literary devices, like the good ‘ole flashback, intentionally uplevel your writing, make it better, more impactful, and craft your writing to hook readers from the introduction.
Literary devices are used to:
- guide your readers in a specific direction to interpret your words the way you want them to
- add color to your words to get more readers hooked from line 1
- help you sell more of your self-published books (if you want to get serious about it).
Although the term “literary devices” can be a wee bit intimidating, they’re actually pretty simple.
In fact, you’re likely using a ton of these elements while writing your book and you don’t even realize it…(hint: your favorite TV shows use these all the time).
