C is for Colours

Just a short post today. Colours are all around us and can add huge amounts of detail to a story. A woman is just a woman until you add in her hair colour - a limp brown, a vibrant chestnut or a sun-streaked blonde. Colours can bring a character or a setting to life, and make even a dull setting more interesting.

Today's challenge is to write about something that's one colour, like the sea or sky, or dirt, and describe it in great detail.


  1. As an artist, I really do appreciate what a little color can do :)

  2. "A woman is just a woman until you add in her hair colour" - did I ever find this post at the right time. Reading that made me realize I had completely neglected my protagonist's hair color. I could picture it in my head, but I never mentioned it in what I'm writing. Found your blog thanks to the A -Z Challenge, and I look forward to reading more.
