A protag whose actions are informed by their religion - but religion shouldn't be the story's focus (think Matt Murdock in @Daredevil) #MSWL

Reading a proposal today made me remember this #MSWL, which I'm still on the hunt for!

I don't want religion to be a point of contention or an Issue™ - just a natural part of their everyday life while they deal with other growing pains.

Expanding the YA spectrum to include older main characters and college experiences can be super beneficial to readers.

Not only teens read YA. Also, personal growth and education doesn't stop by merely applying for college.

Here's a thought! I GEEK OUT over cyclical narratives, like THE OUTSIDERS & KIDS OF APPETITE. #MSWL

Applies to all of my #MSWL: Happy endings. Or even hopeful / ambiguous endings! Shatter me along the way, then put me back together, plz.
