Ginger Clark @Ginger_ClarkHey, was there ever a BABYSITTERS CLUB volume where one of the girls had to deal with the parental aftermath of a key party? Like, Mr. Jones returns home with Mrs. Smith instead, and then someone has to drive home the babysitter in awkward silence?
Max Read @max_readI bet this was cool as hell lrb.co.uk/the-paper/v42/… pic.twitter.com/TgZlttgYZq
A book set just before and during a situation like this would be amazing. Exploring the upending of an established landscape as both catastrophe and renewal through some human stories would be entirely my jam. #MSWL

Prof. Bhaer: The stranger no one knows or trusts

I would be VERY OKAY with a lady-forward family heist novel thank you #MSWL
Ashley Reese @offbeatorbitIt’s been like 20 years and the episode of Hey Arnold where Mr Hyunh is reunited with his daughter who he hadn’t seen since the Vietnam War STILL FUCKS ME UP.
The dream would be an MG novel or series (prose or illustrated) with the same heart, strength of ensemble, and essential setting as my favorite cartoon of all time, HEY ARNOLD. #mswl
I'm interested in a novel that explores the complexities of surrogacy—how the possibility arises, how the decision is made, how it affects relationships, why someone would choose to carry the pregnancy, etc. #MSWL
K. Tempest Bradford is Giving Thanks @tinytempestBased on the conversation about the Babylonian recipe tablets and how a woman figured they were recipes and the men didn't believe her, tell me more stories about women researchers/scholars whose perspective as women changed the way we look at some ancient thing.
The Ripped Bodice @TheRippedBodiceIf I'm being completely honest the romance novel I most want to read right now is one about editors @bonappetit falling in love in the test kitchen
Yep. I have...thought about this while watching, for sure. Anyone falling in love behind the scenes charms me! #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennetteA Lizzie Magie picture book would be cool! I had no idea who she was until about thirty seconds ago. #MSWL
Remember a couple days ago when we were all tweeting about the woman who invented Monopoly? I tweeted about that a year ago! Send it to me! #MSWL
Shannon/S.A. Chakraborty @SAChakrabooksPlease....if a POC #ownvoices author even writes a Mission Impossible-esqe heist novel involving people breaking into the British Museum to recover their stolen treasure, I will help you write a query letter and blurb your book and push it into people's hands.
Still yes!!! (Since we're in the vein of forgery and heists...) #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennetteLast night I spoke with a friend who recently judged a Mrs. pageant. I'd like a (funny, thoughtful, maybe even scary--surprise me) novel about a pageant like that, please. #MSWL
More people, look at this #MSWL!
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennetteHow many times have I asked for this? Give me my friendship breakup book—it hurts at every age. #MSWL twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I'll request this until I get it or I die. #MSWL
Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintempleIt’s #MSWL Day! I’ll be putting a handful of MSWL tweets in this thread for easy finding. My ManuscriptWishList.com profile isn’t set up just yet, but it’s in progress and I’ll drop a link into this thread when it’s up 😁
tbh allllll of Kristin's #MSWL totally resonates for me, so check them out here!
Sara Schonfeld @SaraSchonThe pitch: a modern day ghost-hunter, but instead of locating spirits, they're a detective who tracks down exes who have cut off communication.
This is a genuine--and impossible IRL--dream job, so I'd at least like to rep a book about it. #MSWL
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennette#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true. twitter.com/rachsyme/statu…
When you're writing YA, consider how teens ACTUALLY communicate and use technology! Please! #MSWL
