writing with concrete language


Homogeneous Chroma House

a: Writing with concrete language ~
b: building a brick house

What: "If writing with concrete language is like building a brick house, writing with a consistent diction is like building with a con-sistent color scheme. The first two little pigs would surely have taken to laughing at their brother if he had built his house with multi-colored bricks. Even one yellow brick in a house of red would stand out and make the house look awkward."
