Alyssa Jennette Is Closed To Queries!
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
Alyssa Jennette is closed to queries! @AlyssaJennette#MSWL You know how ghosts are often described in Victorian-era clothes? I'd love a creepy book that links all the Victorian ghosts back to death-centric rituals/obsessions of that era--the hair rings, eating ashes, etc.
And, by extension, the death-centric rituals we perform throughout time and culture in order to hold onto a person's memory/essence. #MSWL

Nicole Cliffe @Nicole_CliffeAnd he has, like, literally 25 hot nieces so there were a LOT of dinners in which a niece got a free meal with a nice young man and the opportunity to woo him away from contemplating a life of celibacy. They were not offended that he chose the latter, God’s calling is strong.
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.")
Destiny Rae Smith ✍🏻🏳️🌈📚 @DestinyRaeSmithIt makes me so sad when I type in “plus-sized” or “fat” into #MSWL, I get hardly any results.

Yes, hello! #mswl
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
Karen Chaplin @CapChapReads#mswl MG I’d love to see a manuscript about the drama, the friendships, etc., that happen in an after-school aftercare program that’s part of a middle school but not really. A Breakfast-Club-esque kind of group.
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
SaraKateW @SaraKateWI cannot stop thinking about this. A woman receiving supernatural powers on her 45th birthday would be a legitimately terrifying prospect. twitter.com/bitchwitha_w/s…
#MSWL With all of the pettiness, glory days, humor, tears, and growth it entails.
kelsey mckinney @mckinneykelseyInject the first novel to come about about a Instagram influencer who creates a mammoth social fallout because she lied about being a vegan directly into my veins.
