When describing certain things in a story—particularly colors and patterns—writers often use a comparison of some sort to help create a stronger visual image for readers. Choosing the right comparison will help paint a vivid picture and encourage the audience to make emotional associations as they read. The purpose of this thesaurus is to help you find that perfect match, allowing you to reinforce a specific mood or meaning for the colors or patterns you need to describe.
