If I were…

As I am nearing the end of my writing challenge, I find myself blocked. It’s one of those insanely awful road block for the creative mind. And worse, work has completely fried my brain for the week.

So to keep up with some creativity, I always do some writing practicing, using metaphors to create a persona.

If I were a fruit, I’d be a guava. Hard exterior, sour with a sweet aftertaste, mushy center with lots of seeds, symbol of my past and future.

If I were a Disney character, I would be the Beast, angry, frustrated, quick tempered, spoiled but I can be tamed when the right time comes.

If I were a vegetable, I’d be watercress. Bitter when raw but sweet when cooked.

If I were a dessert, I would be an eclair, sinfully delicious.

If I were a car, I’d be a Lexus, full of luxury and class and often too expensive to afford.

If I were a flower, I’d be a jasmine. Small but fragrant, exotic and useful.

If I were a color, I’d be gold, full of ego, shining bright and furious with energy and creativity.

If I were a Jane Austen character, I would most likely be Catherine Morland, plain and simple growing up but seeking adventure and story in the most basic of things. After all, a heroine must be the star of her own life.
