Currently reading – I is an Other: The Secret Life of Metaphor and How It Shapes the Way We See the World. I have mixed feelings about metaphors. I like them in other people’s writing but not my own. For one reason, I don’t trust them. But also, I feel they distract from the story – the reader is reminded they are ingesting language. But I’m trying to study them and change my perspective, because they are powerful tools.
