open invitation no. 85: fresh comparisons

Using words to describe magic is like using a screwdriver to cut roast beef.

[Tom Robbins]

Comparisons are good for writers. They help readers connect to the story or think about ideas in new ways. They are great for painting word pictures. The best comparisons are unexpected.

This invitation invites you to seek out a unique comparison. Consider three or more options before settling on using one in your writing.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

PS—There is a Facebook Group for the #sosmagic community. Join here.

I’m joining an open community of writers over at Sharing Our Stories: Magic in a Blog. If you write (or want to write) just for the magic of it, consider this your invitation to join us. #sosmagic

Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
