similar or not?

This looks like a simile to me. You are comparing the effort of shifting your thoughts to the supreme effort of a weight lifter trying to shift a heavy load.

Hmmmmm???

I believe it isn't. When you're giving a simile example you have to make sure that describing someone to something or something to something. Although, if you were to wait that long that would be impossible

Simile or Not

She takes a lot of pictures like a photographer

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 11/22/2014 - 17:12
She takes a lot of pictures like. . . .a photographer?

Wow. Not grasping the phrasing. Would you write "She paints like a painter"? "She bets like a gambler"? "She played a solo like a musician"?

I would recast your sentence: She takes a lot of photographs.

I would have given anything for the power to soothe her frail soul, tormenting itself in its invincible ignorance like a small bird beating about the cruel wires of a cage.

The problem is "LIKE"!

This is, like, a simile...right?? LOL!

Kids these days won't know a simile from everyday talking, like, ya know? :-)

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/04/2014 - 00:16
Wrong

"This is, like, a simile...right?? LOL!" is not using a simile because you're not comparing two things, you're just using the word "like" in a sentence.
