ABC 123(4)s of NaNo: N is for Nationalities


N is for nationalities.  Look around you.  Are blond blue-eyed Aryans all you see? I highly doubt it. Be sure to branch out and have characters of different race and nationalities. Juuuuust be cautious as to not be ridiculously stereotypical (unless perhaps you’re writing a spoof and it’s to be expected). Having characters of different nationalities will allow you to write in about different cultures and traditions and rituals. Do some research first if you’re unsure and if you’re using foreign words and phrases, put them in italics and try to work in a way of explaining the words via context clues, especially if you’re writing for a younger crowd.

Day 14: Most of you are probably just shy of the 25k mark. Holy shit that’s a HUGE accomplishment. Be proud of yourself and don’t be afraid to brag a little. You’ve earned it!
