Today's Tune: Blue Eyes
Every time I type "singed" I feel like I'm typing the past tense of "sing." And then I have to remind myself that the past tense of "sing" is "sung" and that I am a total spaz.
But! That is not what I wanted to talk about in this post.
I wanted to talk about violet eyes.
They're everywhere. What is it about smoldering, beautiful, shockingly violet eyes? I've even discovered them in my own writing. Yes, once upon I time, I too fell under the spell of a purple-eyed character.
Is it the mystery? The exotic factor? The "this character maybe-probably has some sort of supernatural ability" foreshadowing? The uniqueness? Or the fact that the color is REALLY REALLY PRETTY?
I'm genuinely perplexed by this. Nearly every paranormal/fantasy writer I know has had a character with violet eyes at some point.
How about you? Have you ever been bitten by the violet-eyed bug? What were you trying to say with those eyes?
