Yup, first time I started writing in 2016. Guilty as charged

That's why you talk to people, do research blah blah. Literally how I know about more races is #growingup*insertrace* or just seeing things and videos about people of other races

Not unless all you read is fan fiction and already have the visuals to the characters XD

The only time I didn't imagine a character as white was when I read Chasing Red. I couldn't imagine Veronica as a white girl. But any other time, I just assumed the characters were white.

Is it necessary to describe a character’s race, place of birth, or ethnicity? Or is it possible to never describe the character and have the character stand for most races?
i love writing about pocs because it gives a layer of reality and realness to the book. i don’t separate them though. if there’s a poc in my book i ‘treat’ them exactly as i would a white person because color of skin is just a color for me.
