I have two ways to write the same sentence:
- The writing sings.
- The writing is musical.
To me, the first sounds a lot better. It's better, I think, because I'm using a verb to describe what the writing is doing instead of an adjective to provide a more static description.
Is there a more formal term for what's going on here (i.e. using verbs to more-vividly describe inanimate objects?)
