A prompt I created recently for Wildfire Writing class. Get out a box of 64 Crayola crayons and choose four colors that your attention settles upon. Doodle or draw or color for a while without making any judgments of your artwork. Then write about the colors and their names.

A few lines of what appeared on my doodly page:
Raw sienna. Whatever you are, you are brown. Brown with a fancy name. Your brown means hopefulness and quirkyness and what of cooked sienna? Simmered sienna? Sienna half-baked? There is only burnt sienna, too long on the stove. Open the windows! Clear out the smoke! Somebody burned the sienna!
What crayon colors are speaking to you? What are they saying?
