A to Z Challenge: Writing Colors - Yellow

One more day....
Welcome back to A to Z!!

This year, I have been providing different colors for descriptive purposes in writing using the website Color-ize to look at an alphabetical list of colors that we can use instead of using the same basic colors we know off the top of our heads.
