I will always want a twisted mom book. Switched at birth. Who's your "real" mom? What does it matter? I've also been seeing some speculative robo/AI-mom stories out there with comment on guardianship, biological and not. Yes to that, too. Give me something truly sinister. #MSWL
Samantha Wekstein @SWekstein#Querytip 1) What does your character want? 2) What is standing in their way of getting it? 3) What are they going to attempt to do to overcome that obstacle (or obstacles)? The answers to these three questions should be the meat of your summary.
Jenny Chen @jennychen_jcAre we still MSWLing? I've got a few specific asks I've been dying for: (thread #MSWL)
Amy Cloughley @AmyCloughleyI am a sucker for a rich setting and for the complex characters who live in them. So give me your Deep South red dirt, your frozen Minnesota winters, or any other visceral setting that makes me feel transported, and make me care about the people who call it home. #mswl
Sami Isman @SamiIsmanOn that same note, relationships between mothers and daughters always fascinate me... think The Act or Sharp Objects (minus the Munchausen by Proxy) #MSWL
I will never not want stories about fraught mother-daughter-ships. It doesn't matter what genre I'm working in--this is KEY to what I'm looking for in stories. #MSWL
Christy Box @cboxwriterI find it disturbing that no one explains why the Tooth Fairy WANTS teeth.
She considers human teeth a valuable commodity. She must need them for something.
And if I know my fae stories, I won’t like where that’s going.
#MSWL for this life, the next, and the one after that.
Christina McDonald @Christinamac79Check out these 8 Thrillers Featuring Moms on a Mission I wrote about for @CrimeReads. #amreading #crimefiction #bibliophile
You can never underestimate the lengths a mom will go to for her child.
This is at the essence of everything I've been asking for since I was allowed to start asking for stuff (and a little before then too). #MSWL M. S. W. L.
Tis friday noon but I want a story about an exhausted mom who goes to gas up her car after driving around in circles to help her infant fall asleep, leaves her baby in the car seat when going inside to pay at the counter and comes back to find her baby gone. #MSWL #writingprompt
But also, here are things I'm always looking for:
as an umbrella: the exploration of human resiliency via crime lens.
--indigenous/native protagonists #MMIW
--thriller/suspense set in a cabin in the woods
--creepy dolls and/or wells
Dara Kaye @DaraKayeYes, by all means, take his name.
As he lies beside you at night, the nameless one may ask "Who am I now?"
You don't respond. You cannot hear him.
As he roams the streets unrecognized, "Where's John?" his friends will ask.
Stare them down. "I am right here," you will say. twitter.com/lyzl/status/10…
Has this been #MSWL 'd yet? Gimme.
Samantha Wekstein @SWeksteinI'd like to see some villains who may not really be villainous after all. #MSWL
Me too! I fall head-over-heels for villains who aren't villains in their own eyes, and are, at their core, driven by love. Who/what does your villain love and how does that set them on a warpath? Put some blood in/on/around/all over the ms and send it my way. :) #MSWL
