The Color Thesaurus

Dear all
I am sharing a Color Thesaurus. It could be useful.

Ingrid's Notes

I love to collect words. Making word lists can help to find the voice of my story, dig into the emotion of a scene, or create variety.

One of my on-going word collections is of colors. I love to stop in the paint section of a hardware store and find new names for red or white or yellow.  Having a variety of color names at my fingertips helps me to create specificity in my writing. I can paint a more evocative image in my reader’s mind if I describe a character’s hair as the color of rust or carrot-squash, rather than red.

So for fun, I created this color thesaurus for your reference. Of course, there are plenty more color names  in the world, so, this is just to get you started.

Fill your stories with a rainbow of images!

Welcome to Monsterland

Dear Collegues

Welcome to our new blog Monsterland – Ideas for English Teaching. Here we can start gathering our experiences as teachers, our ideas for teaching English as a second language and most important our creativity.

Hope this becomes in a great opportunity to stay in touch as a group and to grow up as the teachers we want to be.
