livegnostic asked: Do you think writers can risk the overuse of similes and metaphors? All the same, I detest repeating words too often and in this case, it would be the words "like" and "as". Should they be spread out in order to avoid over-saturation? Furthermore, what alternative words can be used to construct a simile or metaphor? Thank you!
I’ve been doing that a lot in my first draft, which I am justifying because it’s a first draft. I am, however, going to have to face this one day. Chuck Wendig has an excellent post on this already, so I highly recommend reading that.
i really like the idea of a fantasy setting but in modern times. elves on smart phones and taking pictures for their instagram. dwarves getting into console wars and calling each other casual gamers. mages casting dangerous spells for the vine. i want it.
CAST IT FOR THE VINE
There needs to be a snickers commercial where this guy gives William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy a snickers , and once they eat it they turn into Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto
And Karl Urban is the guy handing the snickers saying “Eat the god damn snickers.”
