For this week we’re talking about writing with color as a tool. Color is a powerful tool when writing. The way that we introduce color can set the scene, create emotion, draw distinctive images in our head, foreshadow what’s to come, and so much more.
Writing from personal experience or from deep emotions can be scary at times. Sometimes, like I’ve done, it requires a first draft that is purely the facts of it all. But if the goal is to create fiction from your own personal story, there are some tools that I have used that have helped me to build a novel with independent, fully-crafted characters that are not thinly veiled versions of me and my friends.
