Writing Palettes

Here are four writing palettes.  The notion of writing palettes (that is, thinking of the options we have when writing as analogous to the options artists have when painting) comes from Harry Noden’s Image Grammar.  The first three palettes below were taken from the Killgallons’ Grammar for High School, a text I’m teaching this semester in my English Grammar class at ASU.  The fourth palette on sentences I created some time ago.
