I attended a workshop by Cat Pleska about putting poetry in your prose.
How do you do that?
To make your narrative flowing and beautiful you can add metaphors and similes and figurative language.
As always, with your writing, choose your best words. Revise and move parts around. And, my favorite, use rhythm and sound. Make the words sing when read aloud.
So, when writing, create a mood, entertain and play with your words and phrases. Using elements of poetry can make your story memorable and a pleasure to read.
Here are a couple of links to elements of poetry.
