My sister brought home about fifty paint swatches yesterday, and I had this idea. I was looking at the colour names, and I thought “How could I use this in a story?”.

So here it is. My paint inspiration game:

Step One:
Take your paint swatches, and fan them out like a pack of cards, so that you can’t see the names of the colours:


Step Two:
Close your eyes and take three cards from the fan.

Open your eyes and look at the colour names. Try to use at least two of them as inspiration for a piece of writing.

On a similar note, there is a paint called Stratford upon Avon. My day is made.
