It is time to practice using metaphors in your writing. Choose one of the topics below and write a 300 word story. Use at least 10 metaphors in the story to describe the topic. If you choose "house" for example, you should use at least 10 metaphors throughout the story to describe the house. You will be graded based on the proper use of metaphors and for the creativity and overall quality of the story.
