Last 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

I was discussing what a 2019 comedy of manners would look like with @maddestofburts this morning. Firstly, #MSWL, and secondly, how do you think that would look? (Let's not default to rom-com tropes, which aren't the same thing--think about society and what's "appropriate.")

I finished Stranger Things 3 and the most important takeaway—the thing that brought me the most joy—was the children loving, trusting, and working with each other. A close second? The adults listening to and trusting the children. #MSWL

Something I would really, really like is a project (illustrated, perhaps?) that revolves around big-picture understanding regarding the ways our economy is set up to prize profit and growth over quality, inevitably resulting in either collapse or exploitation. #MSWL

#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.

hannah capin @tldaaollf

anyone who thinks YA is "unrealistically dramatic" needs to sit down following today's college admissions bribery adventure

blair waldorf has NOTHING on aunt becky

NGL I'd LOVE a YA about a student finding out their parents did this to get them into an elite school and now the student has to reckon publicly and personally with their privilege, whiteness, and wealth + how these contributed to their own ignorance of their parents' plot. #MSWL

A picture book or a literary novel about "Boston marriages." (Notably, Katharine Lee Bates--who wrote America the Beautiful--and Katharine Coman, or Amelia Van Buren and Eva Watson-Schutze.) #MSWL

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of reading/discovering EXTRA YARN by @macbarnett, illustrated by @burstofbeaden. I would love to see a another picture book like that--generous, warm, and service-driven. #MSWL

I'm very much a fan of characters who make the wrong decisions and fuck up and are flawed. I would ALSO like to see stories about people who do all the "right" things, but stuff falls apart anyway because it's impossible to control the world! That's real too. #MSWL

A domestic/Mommy thriller, but about a play group with parent/s who don't vaccinate their children. #MSWL

(Please vaccinate your kids, thanks.)
