Learning to use figurative language is an important step in developing a mature and rich writing style. From similes and metaphors to hyperbole and personification, taking words beyond their literal meaning through the use of figurative language is enjoyable for both the writer and the reader. In fact, the ability to use figurative language successfully is one of the most effective tools in a writer’s skill set.
