Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.
I love color, but in my fiction it’s a torment. Do I say puce or purplish gray? Blue or sapphire? Yellow or citron? (Not the best examples; I can’t think of anything exotic at the moment.)
It depends on the POV character, usually, but I don’t want to use a word no one but a color fanatic would know.
Depends on whom you see as your audience.
If women: puce, sapphire, citron.
If men: purple, blue, yellow.
Even though I think it’s hilarious, you make a good point. I suspected men consider color differently than women do. By your definition, other than my over-educated POV character, I’ve been writing for men. 😛
That’s a tough one, Deb!
I usually try coming up with a smilie or metaphor & almost always end up feeling like I’m mangling a bagel to make it fit in a small square plate 🙂
LOL, Adan! I like your simile! 😀
