Colourful Language (The Right Hue for You)

Posted on Updated on

Colour has the power to excite our emotions and yet few of us apply it to our writing.

What hues, then, should you use to maximise your mood while you work?

Red
Denotes passion, desire and love. Give it a go when you’re writing sex scenes and romance.

Green
Evokes harmony and peace. Not for conflict between characters or westerns and war stories. Also best avoided when writing reviews.

Yellow
Suggests joy and happiness. Perfect for comedy, wisecracks and witty dialogue.

Purple
The colour of luxury, power and ambition. Best for historical sagas about kings and queens.

Pink
Stands for vulnerability and youth. Use it for that YA novel you’ve been meaning to write.

Black
Denotes death, evil and mystery. Great for crime-writing, tragedy and horror.

White
Symbolises perfection. Not recommended.

Blue
My colour of choice. Calm, logical and intelligent – just like this blog.
