Work on writing - similies

Image used under creative commons licence
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
 Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
 Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?
Scream but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there's still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you?
 You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
 Just own the night like the 4th of July

This week your work on writing is use similes effectively in your writing.

Similes are a good way to describe thoughts or feelings by comparing something to something else. In the Katy Perry song Firework she compares feeling lonely to feeling like a plastic bag drifting through the wind or like a house cards that could cave in from one small action.

You have a choice about what you want to describe and if you wish to use poetry or prose (a regular story). but the work needs to be of a high quality and finished within the session.
