Simile Examples. A simile is a comparison between two different things using the word “like” or “as” to make the comparison. Similes are generally easier to identify than metaphors, but not always. Sometimes a speaker or writer may use the word “like” or “as” and not make any comparison. These are not similes. Your two similes could become metaphors by simply eliminating the word as from them. One works, the other one, not so much! You, my friend, are a bat. You, my friend, are a dead door nail.

This collection is a result of a query posted on the OELMA listserv in November Titles have been suggested by members and/or from See more ideas about Simile, Books, Childrens books pins.

I have a rule about reading books. Unless its for class or Harry Potter, I rarely read two novels from the same author. I would only feel the need to read another book by the same author if I really loved the first book. I probably wouldn’t read the second book anyway for the fear that it won’t live up to the first book. Trust me, I’ve tried. The Key to Fresh Similes. So how do we write fresh similes to enrich and deepen our writing? Because effective similes compare dissimilar things, like visual images with sounds, I made myself a crib sheet of the senses in combination with each other. I try work my way through it on a monthly basis, as a regular part of my writing craft practice.
