Dean Lines @deanlinesWhen I was like 14, me and a few mates would “wag” French class and hide out in the soundproof drum room until lunch time. This went on for a few weeks when one day we discovered a “trap door” beneath the carpet tiled floor under the drum kit. We of course opened the trap door.. twitter.com/spur_of/status…
The tone, the humor, the shenanigans. I love it.

Lane @lanewriteswordsSo what if we took that Sarah Dessen/Jenny Han fluffy cheerful aesthetic and made the characters Black and just had a whole genre that was joyful Black kids? Black teen beach reads. Something for the summer, something to dance to.

I'm wondering why I almost never get queried with contemporary manuscripts. Perhaps it's the 'all genres' that's making people shy away...
Is anyone out there writing rom-coms or contemporary with fresh twists?
I love contemporary too. :)
Yes I love strong women. I am a strong woman.
But strength isn't only physical.
I'd love to have clever protagonist who solves her problems with her wit and determination and brain rather than a sword. Even if the bad guys have them.
