Simile

In reflecting on my own writing style lately I noticed I use quite a few similes.

I love them like a bear loves honey.

I use them like a chef uses salt to improve the meal.

I find them so useful to improve my writing and help keep it interesting. I wonder sometimes whether they distract the reader.

Perhaps they ruin the writing like an off note in a song.

Maybe they are unneeded like an umbrella on a sunny day.

But regardless, they tend to find their way into my writing and are simply part of the style I developed over many years of writing…

Like a fruity note in a wine

or like a tree that slowly bends towards the sun…

ok, fine, you get it.
