If you’re like me, sometimes you struggle to find the word for just the right color. It’s not a red desk, it’s not a purple one – it’s something else. And what REALLY frustrated me is that I can spend way more time than necessary trying to figure out what to call the color. Time that could be used finishing my paragraph – moving on to the next chapter. But I can’t move on because I’m still trying to figure out that darn color. I do this with a lot of things, not just colors. Adjectives are a problem, in general – which ones to use, how many to use, if they’re needed at all.

Good luck and happy writing!
