Shades of brown

I like to write about mixed race couples in romances. Mostly black and white. Probably, because I enjoy being in those kinds of relationships. I also enjoy seeing them in the streets and I would love to see more of them in media.

The point of this post though isn’t to wax on about my love for mixed race romance. It’s about my discovery of the different shades of brown. I’m not one to brag, but I do know A LOT of shades of brown, but I was a little taken aback when I googled the color and it came back with so many variations. Of course I became overly excited and had to stop writing my description scene and write this post.

I am going to list the ones that stuck out the most to me. These are the ones I am sure I will use at some point in my writing. If not in this story then in the next. It’s actually got me to thinking that I should Google every color and write a post. I would call it shadysunday. Get it? whatever, It’s OK if you don’t, I never said I was great at titles. As a matter of fact that is actually a great weakness of mine. Anyway let’s get started!

I have intense feelings, but you won't often find me expressing them. My writing is where I feel like I can breathe just a little bit. My goal right now is to write, My ultimate goal is to write any where in the world I want to. (Maybe starting with Norway!)
