Vocabulary is a writer’s best friend. Mine is sadly lacking. (My grammar is worse, but my vocab list is pretty short.)
So! Here’s a word to think about today, maybe use it somewhere if it’s useful.
“The cadence of her footsteps on the marble flooring heralded trouble on the way.”
a : a rhythmic sequence or flow of sounds in language.
b : the beat, time, or measure of rhythmical motion or activity
a : a falling inflection of the voice
b : a concluding and usually falling strain; specifically : a musical chord sequence moving to a harmonic close or point of rest and giving the sense of harmonic completion.
3) the modulated and rhythmic recurrence of a sound especially in nature.
