I like pretty prose. I woke up this morning thinking about how rhythm and repetition are nearly always present in pretty prose. Poets already know it. Fiction writers often forget it.
First thing I did was check the Three Word Wednesday site. Much to my delight the words were—bloody and kinky—words that both end in a long “e” sound.
My first thought was terrific. I can write a terrible tome using words ending with a long “e”. But then I discovered that Thom had tossed us a twist and added tender to the mix.
It is interesting to investigate the sounds in a passage. Repetition doesn’t always appear as the first or last letter and it doesn’t always rhyme. Consider mix and twist, and listen to the “i” sound.
Well folks, I guess I’ll write today until I am weary with words. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll be back again tomorrow.
