I guess I should post some #MSWL? I'm still a bit ~fragile~ since I'm having a lot of symptoms from my chronic illness. What I want is to find something joyous in my inbox. Especially, I was thinking last night, about people with disabilities or illness.

As promised, I am opening to queries again today. QueryManager.com/EmilyKeyes I hope I'm not jinxing it by opening before the ceremony. But I am feeling hopeful and it's been awhile.

Why some of Kamala Harris' biggest fans are in Canada mercurynews.com/2019/05/07/kam… via @mercnews @boogiedownbooks pointed me to this article about teen Kamala's protest with her sister. Ooh. I love teen activists. #MSWL

I kind of want a YA about a Claudia Conway figure? Her dad is part of the Lincoln Project and her mom works for the White House. She is whistle blowing. Throw in a love interest from the opposite side of the aisle and it's a novel. #mswl

Students reporting unsafe conditions at their school, and fighting the administration is my new #mswl. Not necessarily COVID

Watching the History Channel show ALONE. Reminds me I still looking for a female survival story (MG preferable but YA also maybe). Like MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN or HATCHET. #mswl

I read LOVEBOAT TAIPEI this weekend. Good distraction. Loved the main character’s arc. Would love to find a MS like this. #mswl #quarantinereading

I wrote a long post about my #quetzalspotting on Tumblr and why I think there is a #MSWL story in there. esckeyes.tumblr.com/post/190907004…

I think I would like a story about a child who goes abroad for Christmas and is aghast at different cultural practices only to realize the spirit of Christmas is universal. Or something sappy and multi-cultural. #mswl

I would love an urban horror about the people left behind after a disaster. I read FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL and it was harrowing. Was also thinking of the second ep of TWD where the gang is protecting the elderly. That was a cool twist. #mswl

Been thinking about how I would like a YA or MG at an all girl's school. But not a fancy one. Supernatural elements welcome but not necessary. #mswl

I am currently closed to queries for medical reasons. But when I come back (hopefully in October) I will want fun kidlit to cheer me up! #mswl

This is my plane read. Barely started and I already have so many #MSWL thoughts. The Ndongo state was believed you be founded by a "skilled blacksmith" who could talk to a god. Where is that story?
