Quick Writes

Compare yourself to the following:

  • an animal
  • an object you’d find in the kitchen
  • a month
  • a natural weather occurrence
  • a food

Choose any of the things from above and write down as many characteristics about it as you can think of.

New Skill: Extended Metaphor

Extended Metaphor- a comparison that lasts more than one line of a piece of writing.

Example:
George Gray is “A boat with a furled sail at rest in a harbor” (Spoon River Anthology).
“My Sorrow” by Isabella Leitner: Her memories of the Holocaust are compared to an annoying travel companion that won’t leave her alone.
