I am craving contemporary stories that do something creative with time or story structure, or novels with bite-sized chapters, etc. Something contemporary but with a high-concept delivery in the structure. #mswl

How Hollywood is rekindling the rom-com — with the help of romance novels share.ew.com/97ogi5t

Rom-coms have been #1 on my #MSWL for ages now. They’re the books I most often turn to for comfort, for joy, to cure a bad mood, to introduce me to writers & characters whose worldview enriches my life. Authors/agents, if you see this tweet, my inbox is waiting...

#MSWL the book equivalent of the edge in Natalie’s voice on Not Ready to Make Nice

Authors, I'm on the hunt for gentle bruisers.

That scary mofo coming at you in a dark alley? He’s an amazing lover & will make you breakfast just after he breaks some guy’s face. Any subgenre. If contemp I'm a big fan of @MollyOKwrites & @Charlotte_Stein.

Give me classic heroes journeys with two bros or lady bros or non-binary bros just trying to muddle their way through the war. #mswl

I want stories of fundamental good and evil with beautiful, complicated characters at their core and no misogyny or racism just for the sake of historical realism. #mswl

Give me your heartwarming fantasy journeys. Your optimistic young adventurers on horses. Give me your 90’s style fantasies with progressive politics and loads of heart #mswl

And make it POC. Like give me a black/biracial Zoe Hart or Lemon Breeland.

Replying to @TiffanyDiahann

OK I just discovered this on #MSWL (random search) and OMG YES. You are my #MSWL soulmate. I was just telling someone Kiss Quotient set in the South. 😃

If you can write me a YA When Harry Met Sally, both thematically and structurally, I will love you forever #MSWL

#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short

YES, THIS. #MSWL

I’m a multilingual person who often translates for loved ones whose first language isn’t English. It’s a whole set of social interactions and levels of access to systemic power that shape communities and conflicts.

I’d love to see this examined in #SFF.
