It's time to talk about metaphors and similes! When I grew up, I always got metaphors and similes confused. It got to a point where I would give up on metaphors and just stick with similes. Now, after years and years of studying, I feel confident that I know the difference! So, if you're like how I was, maybe this will be the video you've been waiting for!
There is a chance I might have gotten this wrong. Maybe the confusion I have with metaphors and similes is so ingrained that I'll never be free of it. If that's the case and I've made a complete fool of myself in this video, let me know and I'll try and fix it!
To provide a quick summary:
Hopefully that makes sense to you! If you have anything to add that I haven't covered about similes and metaphors, let me know in the comments!
That's it from me. Remember to ignite the story and I'll see you again soon!
