NEIGHBORS and MORE http://tinyurl.com/96bjqcm
Did you notice how you are immediately attracted to a bright colored display? Or how you smile at a little girl prettily dressed in pink? Or how your significant other’s head swivel right and left when a flashy blonde or redhead pass by?
Like many I’m sensitive to colors. Since my daughter was six I let her free to choose her clothe as long as she coordinated her colors. She’d often asked, “Is this sweater matching my blue pants?” and then add, “But I can’t find blue socks to go with it.”My predilection for colors leads me to buy books simply because their covers appeal to me—Big mistake, I may regret later! Anyway, I don’t just like colors I use them a lot in my work. My critique partners can tell you that my manuscript is often decorated with highlights.
Yellow=newly revised, to be carefully checked;
Green=repetitious words or idea, needs rewrite;
Pink=sensorial, smells, noise, touch, I make sure I have enough in each chapter to grind the reader in the setting;
The multiple pink, blue, yellow, purple post-it stuck on my desk around my computer attest to my need of colors to remember things. Even when I read on my Kindle, I hold my little pointer and highlight the lines, words, or paragraphs I particularly like or dislike, in case I need to refer to them later—not that I ever go back to look at them! But I have developed a compulsive habit to highlight.
Do you ever use color while working?
