Creative Writing Prompts with Colors

Andrey Grinyov |

For your prompt today, I thought it would be fun to have a colorful abstract painting.  I love this one by Andrey Grinyov.  You can study the painting and write a list of what the shapes remind you of.  After you make your list,  free-write about one of the images it provoked for you.

Poetry Writing Prompt:  Look at the names of the colors listed below and write a poem with one of these color names as a title.  (Note:  I hijacked these color names from a catalog.)

Midnight Mauve, Cocoa Glow, Rose Radiance, Blue Shock, Mocha Latte, Waterfall, Bronze Treasure, Sparkling Blush, Twig

Fiction Writing Prompt:  Write a story about an animal that is named one of the colors above. 

Creative Nonfiction:  Pick one of the colors that provokes a memory for you and write about it.
