Color Test

Pick three colors - any three colors. Now, create a character and put them in a circumstance where each of those three colors plays a role in defining that character and/or the "circumstance" that starts your story and/or how your character overcomes adversity and is changed by the end of your story.


Colors: Red, Yellow, Blue

Character: Squiggles the Clown

Squiggles tries to hide it from his fellow circus performers but he has a deep psychological terror over the color Yellow. Something happened to him as a child that now forces him to associate the color Yellow with that horrible memory.

Squiggles loves Blue. In fact, he loves the color Blue so much, he painted the entire inside of his trailer Blue. It fights the Yellow in this world. Blue makes him feel safe.

Red is the color of pretty flowers and brand new bicycles but Red is also the color of what happens to little boys when they go into the Yellow.


Fill in the blanks of my little brain fart you see here or invent one of your own!
