Inspired by yesterday, I realised that my MC will be in Nashville over 4th July and I haven't yet made any acknowledgement of the fact.
I'm English, so I wondered - what does the average American do to celebrate independence day (if you do at all?)
Specifically, my character is staying with a group of college-age girls. I've already written a scene of them going out downtown, so do you think if I maybe just added a red, white and blue theme that would work as a nod to the day?
I don't want to skip over it completely now I've realised because it can be part of her whole experience of being there - I just don't want to exaggerate it too much either. So, what do you think? What's over the top, and what's ok? Let me know.
Thank you in advance!
