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
--serial killers
--creepy dolls and/or wells

Is it still #MSWL day? It's simple: I just want the movie PEPPERMINT in novel form. Otherwise known as a commercial domestic thriller that packs a punch, is action-packed, and tugs at the heart strings all at the same time.

I'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

I just saw a book review that used the words "newspaper reporter procedural" and thank goodness someone finally put it in terms! That IS a genre, and I want all of them! #MSWL more investigative journalist/reporter procedurals!

This is a PSA! Wind River is now on @netflix. You have no excuse not to go watch it. Right. Now. Also, total #MSWL. I want a crime narrative shedding light on #MMIW. washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
