    The Simile Game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by MumblingSage, May 21, 2008.

    The rules are simple: complete the similie the poster before you leaves, and then start a similie for the next one.

    Example:

    Post 1: Roses are like...

    Post 2: Ruby explosions.
    This pen leaves a mark like...

    Post 3: Lost rivers.
    A field of stars is like...

    Post 4: the lights of a distant city.
    Frogs are like...


    Don't be afraid of purple prose in this game; the goal is to be creative!

    The clack of high-heels on a parquet floor sound like...
