Practice creative analogies like Hemingway
In A Writer’s Coach, Jack Hart shares this story:
“In A Moveable Feast Hemingway recalls the days when he and Fitzgerald careered through the Spanish countryside in an open car, playing the metaphor game. One would point to an object as it came into view. The other would generate a figure of speech involving it. If he succeeded immediately, the other took his turn. If he failed, he took a drink from a jug of wine and tried again.”
Practice makes perfect. How could you play at making metaphors to polish your skills at writing analogy?
