Similes Authors Can Relate To...

Working through my manuscript of The Midnight Murderer is like... is like... well, why don't I write down everything writing a novel is like? If you are an author, please let me know which simile speaks to you most.

Writing a novel is like...

running a marathon
climbing a mountain
making a life-sized sculpture
organizing a wedding
pulling weeds
raising children
lap swimming
distance bicycling
making a movie
brain surgery
cathartic counseling
walking in circles
building the Eifel Tower out of Legos.

Are there other similes I should add to this list? I'd love to hear from other authors on their additions and selection from this list.
