Hey guys,

So the novel I'm working on is a fantasy. I just have a question and was hoping some of you would know how to go about it.

Is it okay to describe something in fantasy writing and liken it to a real world feeling?

So for example (and this is not in my book).... pushing against a magical boundary or wall, would have the same feeling as if you were to push against gelatin.

Would that kind of comparison work? Or would I need to look at making my comparisons as neutral as possible where I don't liken fantasy to the real world?

Any help in this would be great thanks!
