Kick some assonance

The sounds and texture of language should be just as memorable as the words themselves.

A string of words that have the same first letter, the same sound, or the same syllabic cadence is more memorable than a random collection of sounds. That’s assonance.

Other poetic devices that make words sing include alliteration, consonance, rhythm, resonance, parallel structure, and the rule of three. Better writing is an art.
