Daily Writing Challenge 1: Create an original simile

A simile uses one object to describe another. For example: “The carpet smells like the inside of a trash compactor.” Your first challenge is to come up with an original simile and post it in the comments below, or on any of the following websites:

—twitter.com/digitalwir
—facebook.com/jackheathwriter
—wattpad.com/story/22288019
—jackheath.tumblr.com
—reddit.com/unwrittencast
—writersinresidence.wordpress.com

Avoid cliche! I don’t want to hear that “she was as quick as a flash” or that “his abs resembled a washboard”.

What’s all this about? In short, Jack Heath is the Digital Writer In Residence for Writing Australia. More info at http://youtu.be/MOJc95zbQSg

    “The thought that anyone could miss Ronny was more than Lexi could believe.”

    SIMILE: “It was like ignoring the juggling monkey in teal lame as it picked your pocket of loose change.” from The Way

    Full disclosure: I am not the book’s author, rather its biggest fan & first reader. I am participating on behalf of the author. Since I started the “juggling monkey in teal lame”, I felt it appropriate to use for this exercise. I hope there are no objections to participating in this way.
