Taylor Boo Barton 👻🦴 @taysalionHear me out, more slice of life books but like... scifi and fantasy. Spaceship families foraging in different systems to start a multi-planet inspired garden or an orc couple struggling to make peace with the one mean cow on their farm.
YES #mswl 😍👇🏽
Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein#Querytip 1) What does your character want? 2) What is standing in their way of getting it? 3) What are they going to attempt to do to overcome that obstacle (or obstacles)? The answers to these three questions should be the meat of your summary.
Bonjour Auteur.rice francophone, je suis en quête de projets de non fiction. Comme en fiction, le mot d'ordre est "diversité". Tout sujet est susceptible de m'intéresser dans la mesure où il donne voix à des personnes que l'on n'entend pas habituellement #MSWL
Pretty much my only huge, overwhelming prose #MSWL right now is a manuscript that feels like ACCA-13 and I feel like for this to happen I will have to either wait a lifetime or one of my authors will surprise me next week with a completed MS made to order
Liz Lawson @LzLwsnLook I'm just going to say what we're all thinking (i.e. what IM thinking):
Love at first site is a trope that has merit, esp. in YA.
I used to fall in love SO FAST when I was younger and yeah it never lasted, but that's the point isn't it? As a YA you pop in and out of love..
This so so true!! I fell in love fast and easily as a teen.
Listen. I still fall in love fast and easily 😂
So please give me your love at first sight (or first fight!!!) romances please #mswl
Chris Morgan @C_Morgs65Thinking about my lame joke from yesterday.. What if there was like a Bacherlor for Cursed Knights. Imagine it. Lord Soth, Etrigan, Dracula, The Mountain that Rides, The Fisher King, all vying for someone's love. The Grail Knight from Indiana Jones could be the host.
Hog and Dice @TheHogandDiceReminder that Shakespeare is Public Domain. You can just take his characters and do what you want. Gargoyles literally turned Macbeth into an immortal monster Hunter. Go ahead and put a time travelling Hamlet in your cyberpunk noir story. Who can stop you?
I'm totally here for all the Shakespeare. #mswl
gently toasted daisy 🥪 @miss_sunkisstTop-tier trope: Young male characters who are kind, empathic, peaceful and fun-loving, and remain so despite all the horrible and traumatic things that keep happening to them and the sheer amount of expectations they have to live up to. pic.twitter.com/1oRbKFXrX4
Someone give me a MG with this trope! #MSWL
Orlando Dos Reis @odosreisHi hello I have fallen into a Wikipedia hole and am learning about the defunct Brazilian throne and line of succession and how there are two separate branches claiming the throne for reasons that should absolutely be turned into a Netflix series how are you?
I'm excited to be accepting queries again! Check out my latest + greatest #mswl. My #1 interest is #MG at the moment of all kinds and I'm also eager for #MG and #YA nonfiction including of the #GN variety!
Fanna is finally reading 👓 @fanatalityCall me when you all are ready to add soft girls who are determined and super feminine to the list of strong female characters when putting together book lists.
Here for the soft girls who take no shit as they paint their nails a mermaid color. #MSWL
