Scarlet – Word of the day prompt

Scarlet, a hue of danger. A colour of painted nails, and high heeled shoes. Writers use it as a hint to something dangerous happening. If you see this shade of colour in a book. Beware. Something ominous will be about to occur.

Yet I look at the world around me. Everything is in a multitude of colours – without them the world would be grey. So bring it on Scarlet – let us see your beauty and not your danger.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. Also a girl’s name: Scarlet(t) Johansson and Scarlet(t) O’Hara, for example. II was thinking it might not be so popular nowadays because of its association with promiscuity, but I was wrong. Apparently it’s No 5 in the list of girls’ names beginning with “S”. [Not sure if that is the UK or the US.]
