The Writer’s Block Podcast

Similes and Metaphors

August 7, 2018

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. Mandra Biscornet, Shelly Devlin, and Deborah Monk discuss ways to use Similes and Metaphors to make your writing really pop!

  • Similes are a comparison between two objects using the words “like” or “as”
  • A Metaphor is the comparison between two objects and not using the words “like” or “as”
  • The items you are comparing do not have to be similar in any way
  • Be careful that you are choosing comparisons that draw the reader into your story rather than into your writing. 

All this and more on this week’s episode of The Writer’s Block Podcast recorded at the Studio 21 Podcast Café and hosted on the United Podcast Network.
