Carrie McCarthy is a truly creative writer, she’s one of those rare gems that can say stuff in a such a creative way, it makes your brain cells happy and very glad they can read.
Recently on her blog “She’s got potential” she posted 32 of the absolutely worst metaphors I have ever read, they are so bad they would make great wall plaques or T-Shirts.
Following are the first three from her list, for the remaining 29 hop over to her site and read the rest, plus some of her other writing… She really does have potential, heaps of it, So, if you need some really clever, ballsy, creative writing, that won’t bore your potential readers stupid, she’s your gal.
1. Her face was a perfect oval like a circle that had its two other sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master.
2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a tumble dryer.
3. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.
Please leave her a comment it will re-establish her faith in humanity, or at least amuse and encourage her a little.
