No, you don't have to write stories about munchkins and green wicked witches (but all other wicked witches are openly welcomed, hehe). I'm going more for the aspect of colours. One of the most powerful tools of talented writers is incorporating a theme into a story, and one of the most beautiful and vivid themes is that of colour. That colour could represent hope, resentment, anger, grief, love, hate, or whatever theme (usually an emotion) you might associate with the chosen hue.
Your challenge is to pick a colour, a theme, and write a drabble incorporating them. It can't just be a passing reference to either one; there must be a noticeable undertone (or overtone). No, this is not an easy task, but the finished product has the potential to be extraordinary.
As usual, your drabble must be within 300-800 words. If you do go over the word limit and don't wish to cut it down, you may submit any drabbles over 800 words to the archives and leave a link to your story. Just keep in mind that you will then be subject to submission standards and the possibility of rejection, so plan accordingly.
Please post all drabbles or links below using the following form:
