A Really Fun Contest

I follow a number of writerly BLOGS, and one of my favorites is Writer Unboxed. They have great contributors, insightful commenters, and a general attitude about writing that I find both refreshing and invigorating.

In honor of their 5th anniversary, they are having an Original Analogy Contest. they have some great examples on the post, and a host of eager wordsmiths supplying new analogies in the comments.

Here are a few of mine:

Sam had a sinking feeling, like the trapped and quivering seeds inside a rainstick slowly trickling down to fill his shoes with the dregs of possibility.

Ben shuffled off the mortal coil with the careless grace of a two dollar stripper removing her bra.

Finding the right place was easier than picking the tanning booth abuser out of a lineup of albino stooges.

Go on! Go get to know Writer Unboxed and contribute a few of your own analogies to the mix!
