Story starter!

Some people love living dangerously. For some people, the thrill of a near miss is what they crave their whole lives; the moment of panic that rises up from the pit of your stomach like your blood has turned to ice, but then washes over you like blissfully warm water as the danger passes.

This was one of those moments. You could hear the sharp intake of breath as the crest of the fifty metre wave frothed and foamed like the mouth of an angry Kraken. There were only seconds left to wait...

Sentence challenge!

A simile is a figure of speech comparing one thing with another using 'as' or 'like', used to make a description more emphatic or vivid.

Can you identify the similes in my writing?

Can you write a paragraph to describe the wave, including one or two similes?

Sick sentences!

These sentences are 'sick' and need your help to get better!
