Kim Ji Young, Born 1982: Finished reading this last night. Personally, I feel that if viewed as a social document rather than a fictional work, chances are this book may infuriate you in many ways, as it did me. I don't think I'll be able get over it anytime soon.
But, if seen solely as a work of fiction, you can certainly explore different narratives.

鈥 Azriel's fingers lingered at her nape, atop the first knob of her spine. Slowly, Elain pivoted into his touch. Until his palm lay flat against her neck.聽聽
It had never gone this far. They'd exchanged looks, the occasional brush of their fingers, but never this. Never blatant, unrestricted touching.聽
Wrong -- it was so wrong.聽聽
He didn't care.聽聽鈥

How can some of you delete your Tumblr accounts? Every hyperfixation I had in the last 5 years of my life is documented on this account, this is my whole identity.

Love is for those who know the griefs of time, for it goes hand in hand with loss. An eternity, so burdened, would be a torment. And yet鈥斺 He broke off, drew breath. 鈥淵et what else to call it, this terror and this joy?

How NOT to write a Latinx character
If you鈥檙e writing a book with a latinx character, here are some stereotypes you should avoid.
TW: microaggressions, straight up r*cism
They鈥檙e the only character to be a drug dealer 鈫 of course, if you鈥檙e writing a book where all your characters are involved in drug dealing and general crimes, this won鈥檛 apply, but if you have, say, a group of 6 people and the latinx character is a drug dealer things are getting stereotyped.
They鈥檙e lazy
They鈥檙e servants to white people (maids, etc)
They can鈥檛 speak English without an accent and people mock them;
You鈥檙e writing them being bilingual incorrectly (@prosebyanngie has great posts about bilingualism, check them out!)
They鈥檙e poor, uneducated etc.
They鈥檙e undocumented, clandestines, etc
They鈥檙e sexualized for their race 鈫 if you have a latinx person and you always describe them as lascive or sexual, this is not good. Try instead treating them like a person who likes to be intimate only with people they actually like.
They鈥檙e that character that 鈥渟teals鈥 the mc鈥檚 love interest聽
This is not a comprehensive guide but definitely this will help you shrug off some of these stereotypes!

'People who pop a painkiller at the smallest hint of a migraine, or who need anaesthetic cream to remove a mole, demand that women giving birth should gladly endure the pain, exhaustion, and mortal fear. As if that鈥檚 maternal love. This idea of 鈥渕aternal love鈥 is spreading like religious dogma. Accept Maternal Love as your Lord and Savior, for the Kingdom is near!' -Cho Nam-Joo,聽Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982
