My MC (for a fanfiction but the character is an OC) is mixed race (African and white with a little bit more white) and I was wondering what hair styles I could have her have and how possible they would be for her to do on her own.

I feel like I’ve been doing everything wrong and yet I don’t want to change my stories/characters to suit everyone else while not liking them myself.

writingwithcolor: To Write (or not write) with Diversity No one can force you to write inclusive stories. Inclusive meaning media that consists of marginalized people, because that is what diversity really is – including people who have always been right… Read moreI’m a POC who writes mainly white characters but after seeing all the “diversity” posts on this site I’m wondering if I may be subconsciously prejudiced and now I don’t know what to do.
