and again throughout the story. For example, you have a character in your story
that is sick and dying. It would be poor storytelling to say at the beginning
of the book that someone sick and dying and you here nothing of the character
again until they died near the end. Plot Threads need to be revisited
periodically through the story.
Blush strokes are Threads that create the view of the story or the shape. For
example, the colors or view of the scene around the character or the view of the
character’s themselves. For example, he was an old detective with a pointed
nose. These are the Brush strokes Threads that show the picture of the story has
it goes along.
The Color Threads just add interest to the story. For example, you may write,
“The old detective” but to add color to his character you may say, “The
pessimistic old detective”. This adds some interest to the character and more
interesting for the reader. These are the little details of the story. It is
like a steak that you add seasoning to that enhance the interest and experience
in a meal. A suspense story doesn’t just tell you where the killer is to add the
color or interest but the scene, like what the victim is doing, wearing,
smelling. These Threads give personality to the characters or scene or the color
of your painting.
