Mad About Metaphor

– The idea was difficult to swallow.

I have had this writing prompt in my “saved drafts” folder. I have no idea where to start or what to write. I even thought to myself, do you even remember what a metaphor is? Of course I did! I’m a teacher and do you know how many lessons I have given on metaphors? My problem was that I didn’t want to write some silly poem with metaphors that didn’t work or write a short story with metaphors that didn’t fit. Writing using metaphors was an idea that was difficult to swallow.
