GREEN WITH ENVY

GREEN WITH ENVY

By Natalie Bright

Early Greeks believed if you were ill or jealous, your skin would look green and pale. Shakespeare and Chaucer wrote of characters “green with envy.” Shakespeare is also credited with being the first to use the catch phrase “the green-eyed monster.”

O! Beware, my lord, of jealousy; it is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.” — Othello

Greens = 

Celery, mint, apple green, lime moss, pea Kelly emerald, olive, pistachio, chartreuse, hunter

Spring time is a great reminder as to how many different shades of green there are. Dig deeper into your characters and your descriptive phrases to paint an even more vivid picture for your readers.
