    I am really unclear about the writing part of the exam tomorrow. Our teacher has advised us to use metaphors, alliteration, similes, but sometimes they don't fit the purpose/style which you have to write in. Would you still have to use all of these techniques if you're writing a complaint letter for example? Or is it more focused on fitting in with the purpose than using stylistic devices? Also, is your writing meant to be creative or serious/realistic, I'm finding it hard to get a balance. Sorry for asking loads of questions, but I'm really unsure of what I'm supposed to do and would really appreciate any help before the exam tomorrow
