I like seeing the stories I write through the eyes of my characters. I allow them to show me things I hadn't expected to write from the onset. In psych-heavy pieces this leads to interesting challenges. One I love facing is when my MC is struck with the mind aching setting of colors beyond his (my) normal perception. Usually through the aid of dimension/hallucination/doors-of-life-and-death type scenerios. What I end up with is lines like: The whole scene was tinted in a color born in a neighborhood past red and orange that sparkles and hisses and never sleeps. Or: From the being's words came a play of light that cast a hue unknown to my living eyes. In them I heard the color of burnt anxiety. How do you describe the implausible? And, who should I be reading for inspiration? Besides Dante, him I know inside out.
