Show Notes

Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite are sisters and the authors of One of the Good Ones, a young adult novel that explores Blackness and how it relates to white acceptability, through the eyes of a young womxn whose sister was killed at a BLM protest. 

Kirkus awarded the book a starred review, saying, “Brilliant storytelling, sharp dialogue … An explosive look behind the hashtags at race and history, taking readers on a road trip mapped by love and grief. Close to perfection."

In this episode, we discuss their writing process, and:

  • Getting caught up in perfectionism and failing to start
  • Asking for deadline extensions
  • And more

This Week’s Writing Prompt

I suggest setting a timer for 6 or 8 minutes, putting the writing prompt at the top of your page, and free writing whatever comes to mind. Remember, the important part is keeping your pen moving. Right now we just want to write something new and see what happens.

This week’s writing prompt: Write a scene where your character is having a physical and mental reaction to an extremely shocking moment. What happened? What will happen next?
