A blog chain!
Haven’t done one of these in a few months. Especially those from the Absolute Writer Water Cooler.
I just missed them. To resolve that little problem I kept my peepers on the screen and managed to get on the august one early on.
So what is this Blog Chain about?
According to Aheïlia, who organized this most excellent of Blogf Chain, the subject is: If you had to pick one color, and one color only, for an aspect of your writing, which one would it be and why?
Since writing is intensely personal to me, then the color of my writing, my imagination and my life is:
Blue is a cool color in more ways than one.
It is the color of the pens I use to write page after page. Blue 0.7 ball point seven to be exact.
It’s blue of the open sky, through which fighter planes duel for the survival of a nation.
The blue of a roaring ocean, one part life giver, the other destroyer.
The blue power tie that exoduses confidence even while the company’s future hangs in the balance.
Or the fiery blue of a distant star, a giant of the cosmos which burns hot and for the briefest of cosmic moments lights up the night sky guiding explorers to the uncharted space beyond.
The cold blue eyes of the woman across the room with a matching sapphire hanging precariously from her slender neck which whispers in smoky cool confidence, “Every other woman is a diamond. I am not like every other woman.”
The blue flames that hover above the palms of her hands, barely under control and ready to smite those who would hurt the ones she loves.
Blue is a cool color in every sense of the word but also hot too. It stands out, it blends in. It is uniform, yet unique. It doesn’t shout, “Here I am,” instead it winks and whispers, “How could I miss that?”
It is the color of calm fury when certain lines have been crossed and there is no turning back.
So for all those reasons blue is the color of my imagination.
What is yours?
