Color Your World VIOLET



COLOR YOUR WORLD is a series of threads to provide lists of synonyms for different colors. All too often, writers resort to using the same word for a color repeatedly in their writing, leading to a sometimes boring redundancy that can lend itself to making the story uninteresting at worst and ho-hum at best.

This thread series will give you more options to choose from to keep your color references fresh and inviting.


The next color is Violet. Some repeated shades may be found here from the purple list since purple and violet are very close.
