Thursday Things: Lucky Red

Red is courageous, intense, highly visible, and frankly, sometimes a little intimidating. It is the color commonly used for urgency, such as on stop signs, traffic lights, and fire engines. For that reason, it can be difficult to incorporate into our day-to-day writing. However, it truly is a show stopping color that deserves a little love! In China, Red is meant to represent good luck and prosperity. Pair it with some gold accents for a touch of sophistication and you’ll be writing with an elegant duo.
