      Haha, actually it was easier than it looks. Strategic angled lines!

    Similes, as I understand it, are a sub-class of metaphors, like metonyms and synecdoches. To say one’s writing is “strongly metaphorical” could therefore mean it has a lot of similes. It’s like an infant’s immune system, well fortified by the hair of many pets.

    Ha, I was so impressed by the phone cord I wanted to comment, too! I would have been very satisfied to have drawn that.

    I remember that gem about not wanting to carry things up the hill that you don’t eventually use! I think it was Frank Conroy that gave it to Curtis.
