Question 266 of 365: When is hyperbole needed?

Honesty is sexy. Truth provides a potent attraction. Seeing the world
clearly and being able to communicate that clarity is stunning.

But sometimes being overwrought is just easier. Sometimes the
exagerated story is better to tell. And sometimes hyperbole is all
that is available.

This is where I place the most emphasis:

1. Letter writing.
2. Blog posts.
3. Emails.
4. Tweets.
5. Planning documents.

Most of modern writing is exaggerated, I suppose. And mostly, I’m okay
with that.
