Exercise #489: Your Thoughts
Posted 10/12/12

Today's exercise comes from Krys (though I doubt she remembers it).

Krys said, “I was reading a novel a few days ago, when a character used the word (?!) 'beige-y.' I wondered if I could do something with that; here's the result. Michelle, one of my favorite prompts of yours was one where you asked about the color of a headache. Maybe you can create some other color-based prompts, even a beige-y one.”

So here you go . . . choose one of these color-based prompts and write!

   * What color is your soul?

   * Your spouse wants to paint the bedroom a color you can’t stand.

Critiquers, along with the usual grammar, spelling, etc, review, consider these questions:
     * Did the color have no impact, make or break this piece?
     * Why or why not?
