I decided to go through my soon-to-be-released novel ‘The Ways of Wizardry’ and do a count of the color names I used. These are out of a total word count of a bit under 70,00. It is skewed a bit toward red because one of the main characters is a red demon (though I sometimes referred to it as crimson or ‘wine-colored.’). This is probably of no interest to anyone but me!
wine: 3 (as a color—lots of references to the beverage!)
Some golds, silvers, bronzes, referred to metals, not colors, so are not counted.
