*Due to a recent trend in attempting to "break the opponents ankles" and preference for shooting difficult shots rather than open ones, often times the guard will refuse to take a pick, or simply not know how to use one when it is offered. The pick and roll will not work if the guard does not use the pick. You must force the defenders to switch.

*Traits such as clumsiness or nail biting are simply bad habits. They certainly make the characters interesting and in-depth, but these qualities alone can't function as real flaws. Same goes for being mean or rude at times (often unintentional) - it is not a real flaw, you must go more in-depth. Real flaws can include things such as trouble making friends, narcissism or self-obsessiveness, stubbornness, being shallow/superficial or betraying someone else for the sake of their own circumstances or benefit etc.

*Make sure that they have a balance of both good ''and'' bad traits. This will make them more believable and easier to connect to. For every good trait, there should be a bad trait too. You can even go a step further and put these flaws in the way of the character's goal(s). For example, if your character is a girl who is fiercely determined, (good trait) you can make her self-obsessed or a stubborn pushover (bad trait).
 
 
*Let your character get sweaty, bruised, scarred or bleeding etc. If your story has violence or fight scenes (or if your character has been in fights or wars in the past), they should have some kind of scar. If they can get through a fight without one scratch or breaking a sweat, these scream "Mary Sue" alarm bells and as a result the reader will get suspicious.

*Be wary of "Author Insert" or "Mary Sue" characters. In case you don't know what a Mary Sue (or in a male case, Gary Stu) character is, they are characters who are too perfect - usually a result of having too many good traits and few flaws. They are basically the kindest, prettiest, most powerful, talented characters whom everyone loves or (falls in love with). They usually have weird eyes or hair colour, strange clothes or clothing accessories, tragic pasts (though this doesn't always apply).They usually have impossible relationships with other characters (e.g. being the illegitimate son/daughter of a villain or main character who was previously killed off). They are usually an avatar of the author which is why they are called "author inserts".

*You also shouldn't let your character win the fight in the first round either, as this gives the impression they are infallible (which again leads to Mary Sue). In order to reach their goal, there must be obstacles - and your character has to to fail somehow in order to reach it - be it through another character, the antagonist/villain, or one of your character's flaws that gets in the way of achieving this.

Events are connected with people, so they are just as important when writing your characters who were most likely a part of that event.

*Sometimes keeping it simple can be a good thing. You can get a little fancy, but lots of fur, shiny things, colors, layers, and frills can turn off the good look you were hoping for and cause people to get a deer-in-the-headlights look whenever they see you... which isn't a good thing! But not too much though...Also, being caked with makeup, spikes, and/or skulls isn't very appropriate. If that is what you are into, keep away from a lot of skulls and what was mentioned above. Basically, overdoing the good things can look just as bad as what isn't school appropriate.
 
*Add your own personal touch with jewelry, but dump the bulk. A matching bracelet and necklace or a few subtle necklaces can make a big statement. Try not to buy TOO many shoes, but have a pair for each type of outfit you own (e.g. a pair of boots for jeans, a few pairs of flip-flops, tennis shoes for when you are on the move, etc.) Look for some fun, and maybe original earrings. These can almost always make a statement about who you are. Belts can go the mile... and can be made from anything-even bottle caps, or a marquee!

Buy clothes that will fit you for a while, but make sure that includes when you buy them! Don't keep clothes that don't fit appropriately either, that can fill your head with doubts.

Put the bins high up, preferably in the tree area. After stockings are open, presents can go in bins so they won't get lost in the piles of wrapping paper.
