TFTSP: Skin Color and Food

Posted on: March 16, 2023

Tips from the Slush Pile: Do not compare skin color to food. It’s not appropriate and some find it rather offensive. There are plenty of other colors in the world without using food and those options could also prove useful for conveying tone and character. A pretty, red-haired woman might have hair the color of an autumn sunset while a brash, red-haired man might have locks the color of brick. Conveys tone and character. See?
Go with something else…so you don’t end up making me read the description “biscuit-colored skin” and completely ruin my day.
