A Splash Of Original Colour

Colour is key to a story. Always add it in. Think how much it flavours your life and let it enliven your stories too.

Don't settle for yellow. What about fresh custard, bitter lemon, morning sun, golden sunset, sun-dried chicks, ripe banana, rain-soaked buttercup, grinning daffodil, saffron-infused rice...

I won't start on reds.

It's so much more vivid to visualise these wonderful images, but don't over-use them. It can get a bit cliched and then loses its appeal.
