Writing is like...

K.V. Briar tagged me in a meme and I am in love with this one!  The meme is to think of a metaphor for writing.  KV likened her writing to blowing on dandelion fluff, which I think is a beautiful metaphor.

For me, writing is like a mesmerizing tapestry.

Tapestrys weave together colorful strands of yarn and twine to tell a story.  Weavers spend years on their work, crafting a flawless tale and perfectly placing each strand next to the others.  For me, writing is like this.  There are hundreds of strands to each story I write, and placing them together takes focus, courage, and deep love for the craft.  And hopefully, the end product is beautiful and whole, just like the picture above :)

And the people I'm tagging are...

I can't wait to see what you guys write!  (Even if I didn't tag you, you should post on this because it's awesome!)


  1. Ooo, I like this too. My metaphor for writing would be like jumping off a cliff, it is the scariest, most heart pumping thing you can do, then you head over the cliff and you are screaming with exhilaration. Yep, that is me and writing:)

  2. Great metaphors. I love them both!

  3. Oooh thats a beautiful metaphor Juliana! I haven't thought of a tapestry that way. I'm glad you had fun with the meme :) I also like Deana's metaphor.

  4. Nice metaphor. Thanks for sharing.
