Weekly Writing Challenge: LIKE A BLAST FROM THE PAST, LIKE A METAPHOR, SIMILE OR LIKE, Y’KNOW …

Like dirty feet on clean sheets, the dark clouds rolled in, occluding the sun, turning the sunny day gray and dismal.

“There goes Autumn,” said Maggie, looking up. “And the wind’s picking up too.”

Out the back door

Her companion nodded. “Like God’s leaf blowers,” he commented as a swirl of bright leaves engulfed him

Over before it started. Like a story without an ending, a movie that runs out of plot before it runs out of film. Like dinner without dessert. Like … Autumn … without a peak.

  2. In film making they have machines that make rain.
    Except in Vancouver, where they have machines that try to stop the rain.
    What does this have to do with leaves and Autumn?
    Not a thing.

  5. My favourite is the movie running out of plot before it runs out of film – I have this image of the cast and crew just standing around staring at each other wondering “well, what are we supposed to do now?”

    • And it wouldn’t be so bad, but they stay on camera — and the cameras keep rolling. Those movies where the plot ends, but it keeps droning on and you wonder why they didn’t just stop the cameras and send everyone home when they ran out of script 🙂
