  1. Thank you very much for compiling this info! I’ve found some good tips here that I want to check out in more detail. I’ve been pondering metaphors and their creation since I began taking creative writing classes and my view on this is — the more subjects you are exposed to, the more apt your metaphors will be. That’s why I try to read all kinds of books and articles. Observation is also key. And of course you need to use free associative thinking to be able to link two disparate objects or ideas.
