Nothing quite like finding out, on Christmas Eve, that one of your main characters’ names means “penis” in Japanese, and the name of your Japan-analog country in your world means “murder”. Which means that you have to change them both to something else, because your book is set in an Asian-inspired fantasy universe and you don’t want to be seen as a complete fucking racist moron.

Oh well. That’s what first drafts are for: making mistakes early so you don’t have to make them later.

I’m an idiot…
