Okay, this is a really fun (in my humble nerdy opinion) exercise I like to do when I’m blocked! It can be difficult, but if you’re trying get your creative juices flowing and/or you could use some help with your metaphors, this is the game for you.
Basically what you have to do is go to perchance.org/object , set it to 2 and click the unique box. This will generate two completely random objects, which you have to somehow connect and write a metaphor about. It could have to do with color, shape, texture, use etc., as long as there is a clear connection between them. If you’re having trouble finding common characteristics, you could make a mind chain going from one object to the other, e.g. scarf - neck - necklace - locket.
Let me see your metaphors! Not sure if this actually helps in anything, but it can make for some hilarious metaphors—
