Oh the Irony! (and a cliché post title)


Working on my novel tonight, I’ve begun to appreciate the literary technique of “irony” and the clever / covert ways in which it may be implemented.

One of my favorite uses lately has been that of naming irony. Whether the meaning of the name refers to a particular characteristic (as well as setting) of the target person, or is used when referencing an important event in the novel which affects surrounding characters, etc.

This well-loved device may be easily overused, however, if not situated correctly at proper intervals and pivotal moments where it is best suited.
