Daily Writing Prompt #3.13 – Pretend you are seeing your favorite color for the first time. Describe it. (8/28/13)
I don’t know about you, but whenever I think of the question, “What is your favorite color?” I’m reminded of the exact same line from the Troll at the Bridge in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I watched this movie over and over growing up and still catch it every year or so as an adult. (As proof that I am a fan, I also know the question that causes the Troll to say, “I don’t know,” and fall to his death – “what is the air speed velocity of a fully-laden swallow?”)
Everyone has a favorite – or a couple faves, right? What is your favorite color and why? Do you like red because you are a passionate person, or yellow because it reminds you of sunshine and daisies? Think about things that contain your favorite color.
Describe your favorite color as though seeing it for the first time. How does the color make you feel? Is there a smell or aroma associated with it? Is there an accompanying memory that reminds you of the color?
