"In fact, creative writing is like sex, it being a mental orgasm that is passionate even though the result is stillborn. "
"Creative writing is like modeling clay. We can't mold the clay until we get it on the spinning wheel."
"If your child does not like creative writing, that's totally fine. He only need to know the essay - the Composition Code - the formula for putting their knowledge into a collegiate composition. That's what must be taught, creative writing is like art history (helpful and wonderful and good for the soul, but not necessary.)"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
