Beware the Slenderman on HBO is really messed up, but fascinating. Absolutely worth the watch. (And because it’s on my mind, I would love a book about something like this. #MSWL)

I need a scene in a manuscript where a couple is dancing in the kitchen. That's all. (I had Shall We Dance on today...) #MSWL

Curtis Sittenfeld @csittenfeld

I'm so excited to finally share the cover, pub date, and some other tidbits about my new novel Rodham on @people (!!!)

OMG, this is the book I want, but instead it’s ‘What if Charles had married Camilla from the start like he wanted to?’ That’s my #MSWL, but I also can’t wait to read the hell out of this book.

Today’s work from home movies: When Harry Met Sally, What Women Want, Wet Hot American Summer, The Wedding Date

To relate it to my #MSWL, I don’t care what men want, but I do care about summer camp (counselors & their shenanigans-Upper YA/Adult) & rom-coms like TWD and WHMS (A)

I'm redoing my #MSWL so I'll have a more in-depth list soon, but what I really want right now is small town romance. (Remember Finn on Grey's Anatomy, how he took Meredith on a date to birth a horse? Yeah, like that, but in a small town.) I just need some HEA and adorable towns

Wait, I have another #MSWL item. Blended families!! There is nothing I love more than seeing exes okay with their former significant other’s new partner and vice versa. I need that happiness in my life.

Oh hi, #ProdigalSon is 100% what I am looking for in book form. Son of a serial killer, now a criminal profiler, but also a little insane? Watch it, send it to me in book form. #MSWL

#YA/#Adult: Male and female friendship that is strictly platonic. I love LGBTQ characters, but I'd like them to be straight to show that men & women can just be friends. Ex: Alex and Meredith (Grey’s), Delilah and Gary (A Million Little Things), Olivia and Nick (SVU) #MSWL

#YA Female friendship stories. Complicated end of friendships, not because something dramatic happened, but because people grow apart. We have all lost that person we consider our
best friend. I want to feel it. (It doesn't have to be the full story.) #MSWL

#adult Going back to the Quinceanera post that I retweeted earlier, I'd also love to see this done with a bat mitzvah. Having a bat mitzvah at 12/13 is very different than having one at 30. But, I just want my fun Jewish stories. #hotmitzvah #MSWL
