And the falling in Love is hard. I meet so many Carib-Latinx young people who will embarrassingly whisper their names or rush to spell it because hardly anyone gets it right—and I just want to celebrate how our people name each other.

Please, sis! Join me! We have such fantastic names and nicknames. Even the ones that have roots in Greek/Roman mythology we’ve made our own: Yokasta, Belkis, Dionisio.

My not-so-secret writing goal is to build a Pantheon of modern day Caribbean queens in my books. Including all of our magical names.

Was watching this again and I realized this is what I wanna get asked by moderators and audience members. I want writer questions. I want craft questions. I want questions about the structure of that paragraph on pg. 278 and why I started that scene the way I did in Chapter 15.

I’ve made tostones and they turned out pretty good. Pastelitos are next on my list (let me know how yours turn out). All of the air fryer fritura!

I have most certainly ended up at the wrong campus. I figured it out and made it to the correct campus in time...but it wasn’t pretty.

The only thing that should follow “i’m not racist, but...” is “I do live in a system of institutionalized racism that I absorb & actively benefit from”
