Mini-Exercise: Create Your Own Metaphor

What is a metaphor? We have all used them at some point in our life, whether we knew it or not. Simply put, a metaphor is a comparison of two things without using the words like or as.

Get those wheels turning inside your mind and come up with your own metaphors. Let's see what you got.
