"Good sentences use metaphors. Like a secret leash between two things, our job as writers is to show how they connect. Metaphors can change how you view things." -Lance Larson
I love weird and strange and surprising metaphors. They seem to find me best when I'm exhausted and making myself write and my eyes want to shut. So, then I write whatever pops into my head.
Maybe I have to wait for my internal editor to go to bed so I can get crazy with my writing.
