Mothers are often many things at once. I'd love to read a story about two daughters that view their mother in VERY different ways. #MSWL

I am reading Danielle Evan's BEFORE YOU SUFFOCATE YOUR OWN FOOL SELF and it's...perfection. Layer upon layer of all the essential story elements. Writing that melts into your soul. #amquerying writers: we know short story collections are a tough sell but I AM HERE FOR IT! #MSWL

AFTERSHOCKS by @NadiaOwusu1 is officially my favorite memoir everβ€”Β #amquerying writers this is the perfect example of how to share stories with specificity, vulnerability, and, of course, beautiful writing. And I love the world history woven into the protagonist's journey. #MSWL

I just finished THE OFFICE OF HISTORICAL CORRECTIONS by @daniellevalore and it is the BEST short story collection I've ever read. Sharp, inquisitive, prescient. The writing on a line level is perfection. The stories are expertly-shaped magic. #MSWL

If I’m going to spend time inside someone’s head, I want them to be messy and conflicted. I want them to feel envy, greed, shame. I want them to be manipulative and deceitful. I want them their inner life to be at odds with their public persona. I do not want them to be nice.

I am intrigued by characters who want to be good people, but keep making the wrong choices (habits are hard to break, esp if it comes from a place of trauma). I appreciate characters who are, in fact, good people, but who can’t see it (maybe they are hiding a shameful secret?).
