"Some words are what we call 'colorful'. By this we mean that they are calculated to produce a picture or induce an emotion." (109). The point is to not find a fancy word, but to make the audience feel something. If it's a simple, matter-of-fact sentence, leave it as that. But if the word gets too colorful, the audience might find comedy in it rather than a deeper meaning.

“Anytime I see a rainbow, what comes into my mind is how skillful and talented someone was to create an ark that didn't leak through a prolong period of flood. We must work our talents out and work them out skillfully and then our rainbow of excellence will show.” ~Israelmore Ayivor
