Alphabet Color Quiz

Okay, here's a quiz for all you writers, readers, word lovers, and fashion/decorating/artistic experts.

In the Derek Mason Mystery series, Derek says that he can list ten names for red, but not ten football teams... So, I thought, can I name a color for each letter of the alphabet??

Some are easy, but a few are extremely difficult.

And I couldn't get them all. I had colors matched to 23 of the 26 letters.

Try it and see how many you can name.

Rules:

  • only names of colors (nouns)
  • only one word (so, D can’t be “dark green”)
  • no variegations like brindle, stripe, plaid, check, dots

I'll post what I came up with later. Have fun.

The next Derek Mason Mystery is unfolding in my head and on the computer's keyboard, and now, I have a name to add to the characters: Doris Weintraub.

Doris was randomly picked from the correct answers to the contest question:


From Devil's Bridge, why does Myra believe Gil has the knowledge to poison her food?
Answer: Gil is an exterminator.


Congratulations Doris!
