It is important when developing the plot to consider literary tools.

Why?

Because they will make your life easier. Literary tools are a fast way to stir in some creativity to your story, while adding extra elements proven to make a story more interesting.

Literary tools can be used to foreshadow events, trick the reader into believing the story will end a certain way when it clearly will not. Some basic ones are:

  • Symbolism
  • Analogy
  • Euphemism
  • Foreshadowing
  • Red Herring
  • Irony
  • Metaphor
  • Motif

Not only do they help improve your story, but they will help your writing sound better as well.

Here is a comprehensive guide I found going into great detail to explain literary devices and give examples.
