It’s the first of many bonus episodes! When there’s a topic I want to explore, but it doesn’t justify an entire full episode, I’ll tackle it in a shorter episode between the weekly full episodes.
Today I’m introducing you to a rock that sits on my desk while I write. At first, it doesn’t look like anything special––just a craggy old rock I found by the side of the road––but it’s a valuable reminder of the importance of using specific, intentional figurative language.
It relates to a technique I use a lot in the “Real-Time Revision” videos I produce weekly for members of the Patreon team.
