Did you check out the fantastic explanation of similes and cliches by author Amanda Bradburn? Excellent! Then you're all set to dive head first into the challenge this week. Time to apply that new knowledge to your work and turn it into wisdom. I have to warn you, this challenge is really is deceptively simple. Similes are like eels, they are slippery thieves that can make off with an afternoon's hard work and leave you frustrated and ready to give up. However, when properly trained and tamed, they can add humor or elegance to your style and smooth through the plot without disturbing the reader.
Here's the challenge, put aside doubts and build writing muscles!
