Colorful Writing/Two Plots/Assisted Suicide/Answered Prayer/Recipe

1.  Diann Mills, at The Write Conversation, talks about adding depth to your writing through color. You don't have to be a writer to benefit from this article. See why it's probably not a good idea to paint Junior's nursery yellow.

2.  Dave King writes about Your Two Plots at Writer Unboxed. Paying attention to your characters' inner life as well as the outward action can give readers a much-needed break but keep the action going.

3.  Babies are not the only ones at risk these days. Breaking Christian News reports on assisted suicide. The elderly are being put in jeopardy.

4.  Jodie Wolfe is featured on Elaine Stock's blog. She talks about Prayers Answered.

5.  This recipe for cracker candy looks delicious. Okay, it has chocolate. Need I say more? Check it out on Afternoon Baking With Grandma.

Writers:  How do you incorporate color into your writing?

Readers:  Did you try any new recipes during the holidays? Please share. (I tried the Almond Joy Cookies found on Facebook. They received mixed reviews.)

Hi Susan! I've recently started to use colour in my journalling. This way, when I look back I can quickly see my progress, gratitude, and the scripture verses that popped at me when writing. My free thoughts are still in blue pen. And do find using colour boosts my creativity as it just makes the page look more fun!

Hi Susan: I think people would love the cracker candy recipe. It's not on my diet. I am intrigued that I don't remember hearing about the Colorado measure. Thank you for the information.

Hi Lynn - Great idea! I've never used highlighters/different pen colors. Perhaps I should give it a try.

Hi Linda - Thanks for stopping by and commenting. We had a bit of snow over the past couple of weeks but nothing major. That's fine with me! Stay safe and have a great weekend.

Hi Quiet Spirit - I've tried several recipes I've seen on Facebook. There have been winners and losers. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
