  • Metaphors A strategy for writing creatively…
  • Step 1
    • Identify the object or idea that is the subject of what you are writing or saying. For example, suppose you are trying to describe a sunset.
  • Step 2
    • Identify what it is you want to communicate about that object or idea. You want to bring out how beautiful the sunset is.
  • Step 3
    • Identify another object or idea that strongly implies what you want to communicate. You decide that the idea of "painted" would be a good way to communicate the beauty of the sunset.
  • Step 4
