Skilled writers often use poetic elements--like similes--in their paragraphs and stories. Today, you'll be creating a simile that inspires an original story or a description.
Create a simile with the simile generator below . Click the buttons below until you create a simile that you can use to describe a character you create in your brain. Write a story or a descriptive paragraph about your character, and use the simile somewhere in your description.
You can start your story/paragraph with your simile. Or you can hide your simile inside your writing and challenge a friend to find it. Don't just drop the simile and run...expand on it (like in the sample from the next paragraph) by showing more details of your comparison.
Here's a hint to make a more successful simile. Try adding an adjective in front of the Interesting Noun you're given. For example, if you're dealt "His love is like a swimming pool," change it to "His love is like a crowded swimming pool," or "His love is like a public swimming pool," or "His love is like a well-chlorinated swimming pool" before writing your description. And have serendipitous fun!
