It’s been a few weeks since we discussed literary terms. This week, I would like to mention anthropomorphism. It is a long word which simply means giving a non-human object a human characteristic. For example: “the rock sat there staring at me indefinitely.” “Why use this device?” you may ask. By giving a piece of your setting human attributes, you increase the relatability between it and your reader. The reader may also feel more endearing toward the object as well.

Happy writing!
