Everybody has their thing. You know, that one thing that they thought of, that they do well. We writers — We have our blogs. Some of us call for excerpts or favorite passages. Others for recipes. Some want hero interviews or heroine beauty tips. Others do their marketing news or book reviews.
So I thought, “I need my blog thing.” The one thing that could be a reflection of me.
Well, I thought and I thought. I thought so hard my brain exploded. My eyes bugged out like a stomped-on toad and crossed like the chicken getting to the other side. It was then I realized–I love metaphors or more accurately, similes — but similes don’t provide the same alliteration with Monday that metaphors do(and I also like alliteration but that’ll have to be another day).
So, I thought maybe it would be interesting to see what kind of metaphors, similes and analogies we could come up with on a weekly basis.
In my writing, I use metaphors and similes to create a picture but to also define characters and settings. They are an integral part of my writing. And what’s more, they’re fun. More fun than a naked zebra doing yoga.
So come on. Give me your best, worst, silliest, funniest or strangest metaphors, similes and analogies. They can be from a published work, a work in process or something you thought up when you got here. Bring them on.
I can’t wait to read them.
