I know it might look as though I'm getting the SOL brains trust to write my story for me, but I have a couple of niggling issues I feel I haven't got quite right and I'd appreciate your help.
1) A female character's favourite colour is a darkish shade of green. Her prom dress and vehicle are both that colour. I've been unable to find a suitable shade of green with a positive-sounding name. My current placeholder is 'Forest Green', but too many readers would probably have to look it up. (British Racing Green is too dark.)
2) A pre-photography newspaper has a hand-drawn picture of someone with a caption underneath in very ornate script that foils a modern text-recognition programme. I'm stumped on an appropriate technical term for the ornate script. I have no expertise in calligraphy and fonts etc.
