Sauteed mushrooms are tasty. I mean, who came up with the idea of adding butter to fungus to make a delectable side dish? And you can add other things too!
Good: Mushrooms and butter.
Better: Mushrooms, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic.
Best: Mushrooms, butter, salt, pepper, garlic, fresh chives, and white wine.
Yum! Wine really can make anything taste better. Like hyperbole. I love a sentence of hyperbole on the page. It’s really my favorite thing to write- I do a whole edit just to find spots to insert hyperbole.
Good: She glared at him. (Okay, maybe not a good sentence, but nothing wrong per se.)
Better: She gave him a withering glare. (Working in the right direction, but still not there yet.)
Best: Her glare could have obliterated every village in Egypt.
Ahhh… Just right!
I love mushrooms! Yum!
I love the Hyperboles you use in your book.
I do not love my Hyperboles so much. 😛
Also, I definitely love sauteed mushrooms. mmm.
Mushrooms are some of my favourite things 🙂

Ah, you're making my mouth water. I adore mushrooms.
It's 9AM and I'm hungry.
I'M NEVER HUNGRY AT 9AM.

*off to the kitchen*
Great examples! I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms, but I loved your hyberboles:)
Oh, I'm totally loving this analogy! :o)
And you're makin' me hungry for some sauteed mushrooms!
Maybe a post on books that use hyperbolye…and mushrooms too of course:)

Sauteed mushrooms are fantastic! And so is good hyperbole. I just like to say the word, honestly. I liked your last example!
