Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

random literary gripe...

does anyone else find the over-use of simile in literature trite, frustrating and unimaginative.

don't just tell me that "her hand opened like a rose petal in bloom" show me that in the goddamned prose, or just say "her hand openned"

simile is for the S.A.T.s

"Simile is to Literature like a XXX is to Zachary's Brain-case"

1) flower
2) rose
3) Bullet
4) none of the above
