Rainbow Writer

On page 53 of Storyteller, Kate Wilhelm gives an alternative way of doing the exercise that I described yesterday in this blog. Take a copy of a story or book that you don’t mind marking up, get some colored pencils, then underline the material that is about character, setting, action, etc., in different colors. Wilhelm says that a good story should have a “rainbow effect” when you are done.
