I smell an #alternatehistory novel! In 1916 there was a proposed Amendment to US Constitution to put all acts of war to a national vote, & anyone voting yes would have to register as a volunteer for service in US Army huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/04/ame… #MSWL #WritingPrompt #StoryStarter

Damn, no wonder Mr. Miyagi was a HAMF. I'm surprised no one ever really took this concept and fully ran with it in a book... I loved John Okada's NO-NO BOY and would totally read something like this in a heartbeat. #MSWL #WritingPrompt #StoryStarter reddit.com/r/MovieDetails…

Word on the street is that #MG #Fantasy is the next big thing in #KidLit. Good thing this #LiteraryAgent already Ranks #1 on #Publishers Marketplace for #Childrens Fantasy! Consider this another #MSWL for #mglit! tridentmediagroup.com/agents/mark-go… #SFF #ChildrensBooks

When someone sends you a query letter for a manuscript you didn't even wish for but you know you always wanted #MSWL
