Way to Keep Focused

What is your color story? Have you ever written a story about a color and how it affected you? I wrote about yellow in my memoir writing time. I used to get sick from the color of yellow when I was young. It sounded strange but when I posted my essay on a memoir writing site, others chimed in about how a color used to affect them. It was nice to know I wasn't the only one with this odd reaction to a color.

Write about a color and it's affect on your life? Jot notes to write about other memories on your favorite colors, colors you don't like, or colors you can't live without.

By the way, now I enjoy the color yellow in my life. Perhaps I outgrew my negative reaction to it or the reaction served it's purpose.

Is it just the colour or the particular shade of that colour? I mean not all the yellows are repulsive, some are quite nice, some make you sick. This is a very interesting thought, to write about a colour. Maybe I should try that too.

Wow, that's an interesting consideration; if it was just the shade. Could have been because I really enjoy yellow now. I have somehting yellow in every room of my house on purpose. So it could have been but this happened when I was a child so I don't remember and the color selection wouldn't have been up to me. I'm glad you asked this question - thanks. C
