Create similes. What is something like? Come up with a list of noun as subjects, then finish the sentences. Ask yourself which comparisons work. There should be some similarity in the compared, more so than in metaphors, that changes one thing into another. Read your likenesses and assess them. Keep whatever works and use it in a story.
