Understanding similes/metaphors
Imagery is the use of language that appeals to the senses. When writing, include words that help the reader see, hear, smell, taste and feel what you are describing. This can be achieved by using similes (using as or like to compare two things, e.g. The deer ran like the wind) and metaphors (comparing two similar things to make us see the similarity between them, e.g. She is a mouse = quiet .
