Up the road or down, sometimes further afield, often not for long, we're out most days.
When you mentions colors in your posts, I can visualize them. Makes your posts like paintings, Lucy. A good skill for an artist-writer to have, one I wish to acquire.It is a daily pleasure to read your blogs.:)
Thank you Crow. It's interesting though, because while I love colour in words as much as pictures, I've sort of been aware that I want to use it fairly sparingly, that actually it's a rather too easy way to create a sense of vividness, that might better be achieved otherwise... I haven't quite worked this out yet. When I was helping edit an on-line magazine including a lot of poetry, I got the feeling that when writers relied heavily on colour words, their work was often a bit thin, somehow. Yet I do love introducing colour accents, and also striving to describe subtle and elusive colour, and I love writers who do it well.Thanks for making me think more about this!
