Detail makes the difference between boring and terrific writing. It’s the difference between a pencil sketch and a lush oil painting. As a writer, words are your paint. Use all the colors.

I just had to clink over to tell you how pretty the paints look. Love the quote too, but the paints are what really attracted me.
LOVE the paint cans, esp. since I just helped my daughter paint her bland white-wall apartment.
Now we see lush Russian sage, mahagony brown...beautiful!!!!
